Neurofeedback may be conceptualized as a type of biofeedback that has traditionally used the electroencephalogram (EEG) as a source of feedback data. Neurofeedback differs from traditional forms of biofeedback in that the information fed back to the patient (via EEG tracings, functional magnetic resonance imaging [fMRI], near-infrared spectroscopy) is a direct measure of global neuronal activity, or brain state, compared with feedback of the centrally regulated physiologic processes, such as tension of specific muscle groups or skin temperature. The patient may be trained to either increase or decrease the prevalence, amplitude, or frequency of specified EEG waveforms (e.g., alpha, beta, theta waves), depending on the changes in brain function associated with the particular disorder. It has been proposed that training of slow cortical potentials (SCPs) can regulate cortical excitability and that using the EEG as a measure of central nervous system functioning can help train patients to modify or control their abnormal brain activity. Upregulating or downregulating neural activity with real-time feedback of fMRI signals is also being explored.

Insurance carriers have their own policies regarding what they will cover for your particular policy.  It is best to contact your insurance company and ask them whether they will cover neurofeedback for your condition.

We are not on insurance panels, and we do not file insurance for you. We can generate an insurance form that you can file. The statement is filled with insurance codes for your sessions plus the other information required on an insurance form.   Our clients pay the for their services with credit cards or checks. Sessions are often billed as biofeedback insurance code 90901 (though other codes are used on occasion ). Sometimes insurance companies cover the codes and reimburse you, however they may also deny coverage or payment.

Payment plans for the care you need may be set up to fit within your budget, at a price you can afford.

Neurofeedback costs about the same as getting your child’s braces from a dentist. 

Insurance for Traumatic Brain Injury:

If you have had an auto accident or another accident such as sports, (soccer, football, baseball, etc.) where an insurance policy may cover treatment for the accident then it may help. Many individuals have been able to receive help by using their auto or sports insurance policy for reimbursement directly to you.  You will be required to manage your own claim and to pay for your services directly while you submit your claim to your insurance company.

Health Savings Accounts:
I provide a statement to individuals that can use their Health Savings Account for funding their health care. This is a very good option and many people try to plan ahead how much they will likely spend to get tax free dollars for their Neurofeedback treatment.

My experience with Dr. Young has been very informative. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my brain. I’ve seen changes as far as my pain threshold, going out to eat and making good food choices. The treatment is fun, it’s entertaining and it goes by fast. Dr. Joe is easy to work with.
