Additional information about Dementia Screening Services: Are you or is your loved one experiencing memory loss? Do you wonder if it is simply a part of normal aging or whether it may reflect the early stages of a more serious condition, such as Alzheimer’s Disease or other types of dementia? 

The UCLA Psychology Clinic is offering a new service for older adults with concerns about memory loss and dementia, which can be offered fully remotely via telehealth if desired. The Dementia Screening Service provides a quick (approximately 3 hours) and cost-effective ($350) method to identify older adults who may be experiencing memory loss or dementia that may warrant a more thorough clinical evaluation or referrals to other providers. The Dementia Screen Service can also identify those who do not appear to be experiencing clinically significant cognitive changes or dementia. The one-time visit includes clinical interviewing of both patients and informants, questionnaires and rating scales, a cognitive screening measure, and a brief neuropsychological test battery. Preliminary feedback is provided at the end of the session, followed by a letter summarizing the key findings of the screening and personalized recommendations. All services are conducted by graduate students in the top-ranked clinical psychology Ph.D. program at UCLA under the supervision of the Associate Director of the UCLA Psychology Clinic, a licensed clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist with expertise in geropsychology. For further information or to make an appointment, please call the UCLA Psychology Clinic main office at: (310) 825-2305.

Additional Assessment Services Adult clients (18+ years old) interested in more immediate service by a licensed psychologist with a specialty in neuropsychology may elect to receive assessment services provided by the Associate Clinic Director, Dr. Philip Sayegh. Dr. Sayegh will provide the intake, test interpretation, report writing, and feedback, and students may administer part or all of the standardized testing and conduct test scoring. These services are billed on a different scale than other assessment services, with an hourly rate of $201. The typical cost for a standard assessment battery is $2,814, which must be paid in full at the time of the first appointment. Additional fees may be charged for cases that require additional time or a reduced fee will be charged for cases that require minimal testing. Total expected fees for this service range from $2,412-2,814. In addition to these comprehensive adult assessment services, hourly consultations with Dr. Sayegh are billed at a rate of $201/hour. For further information or to inquire about availability, please call the UCLA Psychology Clinic main office at: (310) 825-2305.

Right To A Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. 

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
