IVA-2 Billing Information

Many insurance companies recognize the validity of Continuous Performance Tests (CPT) in clarifying the diagnosis of ADHD. Some insurance companies require any psychological testing to be pre-approved and it may be necessary to provide documentation regarding the reasons for the testing. If testing using IVA-2 is questioned, IVA-2 Reliability and Validity studies are included in the IVA+Plus Interpretation Manual, and permission is granted to registered users to copy these studies for the purpose of obtaining reimbursement for services rendered.

Effective January 1st, 2006, CPT codes for billing have changed. Billing procedures now require different codes depending upon who performed the testing – the clinician, a technician, or solely computer based testing.
