EIPA Testing Policy

Effective January 1, 2011
  • After your registration has been received and a test date and time have been determined, WVCDHH will send a letter via U.S. Mail assigning you a test time and location.
  • The test administrator will wait until 20 minutes after your test is scheduled to begin before recording you as a "no show." If you arrive more than 20 minutes after your start time, you may be allowed to take the assessment on the scheduled date only if the schedule can accommodate such a change.
  • The test will take approximately two hours, including a warm up session of about 45 minutes.
  • The cost of the test is $350 and must be paid to Boys Town National Research Hospital after your pre-registration is accepted. You may bring your payment with you on your testing date.
  • If you cancel your appointment to test without 72 hours' notice or you test again within one year of your most recent test, you will be charged an additional fee of $50, payable to WVCDHH.
