Cost of Initial Diagnosis and some help

Hello All,

I've called around for the initial ADHD treatment and am getting multiple quotes of around $700 for the first visit.  Is this a typical figure?  I've also noticed that the treatment might fall under the mental health section of the health insurance and is not covered by insurance.  Do you know if the initial visit for diagnosis is usually covered by insurance? 

For spouses, would you recommend a family member go to the visit with the ADHD person?  I'm just afraid of something being forgotten or overlooked by the ADHD spouse.  Any other tips or suggestions for initial diagnosis/doctors would be greatly appreciated!
