  • New NP (and maybe previous practice) is out of network for current insurance.
  • New NP has prescribed ADHD eval by someone that is out of network (maybe procedure isn't covered).
If my understanding is substantively wrong, pls disregard this post.

If I was in your shoes,
  • I would find out if an eval is covered by your insurance if performed by an in-network provider or if it is 2,500$ no matter what.
  • If it is $2,500 no matter what I would shop for an in-network NP that won't require an eval.
  • Assuming you have a long-term relationship w/ your new NP's practice, I would talk to your NP or someone in their practice and see if they can become in-network.
  • If you don't have a long-term relationship w/ your NP's practice, I would shop for an in-network NP. I would also shop for an In-network Doc if current one isn't in-network.
HTH, -LN
BUT what the hell are you getting for 2500$??
