How can I learn more about neuroAgility and what they have to offer?
- Read our website
- Read the “what is neurofeedback” article, by Corey Hammond
- Notice the extensive bibliography in the links/resources
Will my insurance cover neuroAgility’s sessions?
We ask you to contact your insurance carrier to determine if you have out-of-network mental health benefits. You can find their member services phone number on your insurance card.You will want to ask them specifically:
- How much is my coverage for out-of-network mental health benefits?
- How much is my deductible?
- How much of my deductible has been met?
- Is prior authorization required?
Once you have received your insurance information and you begin your work with neuroAgility, we will submit all insurance claims for you once per week.
We ask all services are paid in full at the time of service.
Our office manager can give you CPT codes if your insurance carrier needs more information.
How do I start the neuroAgility program?
- Call to schedule a consultation, 1 hour
- Once the consultation has been completed and we come to the consensus that nfb seems like a good idea; there are three appointments needed to get started.
First Appointment : 90 minutes
Initial Developmental/Behavioral Clinical Assessment. Face to face interview.
Second Appointment :
- IVA : 30 minutes
IVA Integrated Visual and Auditory Continuous Performance Test; A very good baseline measuring reaction time and response time to both auditory and visual stimuli.
- qEEG : 60 minutes
Brain mapping. We will give you instructions on what you need to do before having your electrical activity measured and artifacted.
Third Appointment : 60 minutes
A complete presentation and review of your qEEG results and protocol design with physician and director of nA, PC. Before this appointment there is an internal review with 3 professionals reviewing all clinical data, comparison with map, and design of individual protocol. After this review, we will then begin neurofeedback training.
How many sessions of neurofeedback will I need?
It depends on what you come in for. There is a very good empirical average of 40 sessions. Sometimes it is only 35 sessions, sometimes it is 60, depends on brain plasticity, consistency, and severity.
How many times a week would I do neurofeedback?
neuroAgility recommends training two times per week minimum. Each session is one hour. Every neurotherapist that works at nA, PC is a Licensed Professional and is a specialist in cognitive behavioral therapy. Offering a therapeutic setting, performance and support are big components of our work.
How long is a neurofeedback session?
We schedule our sessions for one hour. This gives us time for hook up and cleaning. We can then work and monitor all inventories and progress.
How much does this cost?
We will review cost with you at the consultation, or we can email you a price sheet. We have formal 20 Session Reviews where the whole team gathers to review progress; along with 40/60/80 Session Reviews. You can purchase nfb by individual sessions, or in packages of 10 or 20 at a discounted price.
If I were to come in for sports performance, how would I get started and what would we do?
We would start in a similar way to the traditional program, and spend more time and detail on the presenting issue. We have some very specific performance/athlete inventories that you will fill out, and they take a bit of time. This gives us insight on what detail is really needing work. Work can range from pre-performance routine/post-performance routine work, to us watching a competitive round of golf, to coming to a practice and meeting coaches. The work here is very specific, and the integration of the neurofeedback can be a key element along with mental strategy in taming the mind to up your game.
