No Surprises Act & Good Faith Estimate


You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don't have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the expected charges for medical services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at lease $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate you can dispute the bill. You will receive a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.
