Notice on Good Faith Estimates for Self-Pay Clients

 

Background: The "No Surprises Act" entitles you to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" when establishing care and at any time during your treatment when your cost/fee for services is adjusted. At the time of this notice, this only applies to clients who are self-pay, pay out-of-pocket, and who do not intend to submit an insurance claim for reimbursement.

Psychotherapy Disclaimer: Regarding the nature of receiving psychotherapy services, it may not be possible to predict the exact number of sessions or length of treatment, as this may vary or change based on your treatment goals and progress. If/when the frequency of treatment, length of treatment, or fees for treatment change, an updated Good Faith Estimate will be provided.

Notice on Your Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate: You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost.

 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill.
