  • Psychological Exam

    I'm scheduled to join the Temple University Police Academy in March and I need to get my psychological forms filled out. I have psychologist that says he can do it but it'll cost $400! Really?! Any recommendations on where to get these documents completed? Does it really cost this much? I do have insurance but he told me this evaluation is not covered by insurance... I'd appreciate your comments!!

    Never heard of a private psychological exam for admittance to an academy.

    The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy charges POLICE AGENCIES $180 to administer and evaluate an MMPI so it would not be out of line for a private psychologist to charge $400 for his/her services.
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      That's different... Before I was accepted into the academy, we went through a psych eval, but it was done by the school and I believe it was about $100.

        I have heard of a few random self sponsor programs that require applicants to select from a pre-approved list of providers and pony up the money for the battery of tests so this is not completely unheard of. As for suggestions as to where you can go- that is completely up to you. Just be sure the provider is licensed in the required disciplineas there is a difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist----make darn sure you use the right one lest you pay for an evaluation that will not be accepted.

        When it comes to identifying what your particular insurance will cover- I would strongly suggest you consult with your insurance company. Some may cover ‘non-medical’ office visits while others will only cover psychological or other medical services when such it tied to a condition or diagnosis of one. This “may” fall under the pre-employment/school provision of your policy- if there is one, or it may not. Only your insurance provider can speak to this.
