Dr. Seidel completed her masters and doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Widener University’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology in Chester, Pennsylvania. During her doctoral training, she completed additional coursework required to earn the Neuropsychology Certificate as well as certification in School Psychology. She completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology, which emphasized providing diagnostic assessment and ongoing consultation and care for children, adolescents, and young adults.
Dr. Seidel specializes in neuropsychological assessment of children, adolescents, and young adults who experience challenges with attention, learning, executive functioning, and social/emotional development. She also focuses on follow-up consultation and evaluation, which are used to inform academic programming and treatment planning.
Dr. Seidel provides comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations, school observations, follow-up care with families, and consultation with schools and other treating professionals.
Dr. Seidel is a participating provider in the following health plan networks: Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Behavioral Health (UBH), Harvard Pilgrim (UBH-Pacificare) and Beacon Health Strategies. For all other networks, payment is expected at the time of service. Some networks may provide partial coverage for her services on an out of network basis.
Coverage for neuropsychological evaluations can vary substantially by case and by health plan. While initial consultations are generally covered by health plans, costs for the evaluation can only be determined after initial consultation and are based on the medical policy of the health plans, pre-authorization requirements, and the specific details of the case. Detailed cost information will be provided at that time.
Insurance Networks and School Districts
For many neuropsychological evaluations, the evaluation may be done in part for educational purposes, and in these cases, portions of the evaluation are not covered by any health plan for any provider. The portion of an evaluation that is uncovered by a health plan will be the responsibility of the patient or their parent.
Although we do not accept the Massachusetts Rate Setting Commission rates, many school districts hire our neuropsychologists to provide evaluations for them or approve payment at our rates for independent evaluations.
Dr. Seidel is available in our Lexington office.
