What is an ADHD assessment?
An ADHD assessment is a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether you meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD.
How does the ADHD assessment work?
Once you submit your assessment, a licensed psychiatrist will review your information and determine whether you meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. If they need any additional information, they will send you a message through our website.
Once the doctor completes your evaluation, you will be able to download a copy of your results from the Medzino portal. If you are diagnosed with ADHD, you will receive a formal diagnosis letter that you can take to your doctor for further treatment or to your employer for reasonable accommodations.
How long will it take to get my results?
You can expect to receive an email within 1-2 business days of submitting your order letting you know your evaluation results are ready to be downloaded from your account.
Can Medzino treat ADHD?
While our ADHD assessment is available to patients in all 50 states, only patients in Texas can request treatment. Treatment for diagnosed patients in Texas will be through the Specialty Clinic of Austin.
Who will review the assessment?
On Medzino, the assessment is completed by a licensed psychiatrist with decades of experience in diagnosing and treating ADHD. If they determine that you meet the diagnostic criteria for ADHD, they will issue a formal diagnosis letter.
What is the difference between this assessment and an online screening tool?
While an online screening tool may help you determine whether you need to seek further evaluation for ADHD, it is not an official diagnosis like the one you would receive from Medzino.
Can my child be evaluated?
There is no age requirement for our assessment. Individuals of all ages can be evaluated for ADHD through Medzino. If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian needs to complete the consultation form for you.
Can my insurance cover the assessment?
Although we do not not directly deal with insurance companies, the cost of the assessment can often be reimbursed by your insurance provider. You will need to submit an insurance claim directly with your insurance company. The information typically needed to fill out the claim details will be provided with your assessment results.
