Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act www.cms.gov/nosurprises
Under the law, health care providers must provide patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. If you don’t have health insurance or you plan to pay for health care bills yourself, generally, health care providers and facilities must give you an estimate of expected charges when you schedule an appointment for a health care item or service, or if you ask for an estimate. This is called a “good faith estimate."
Your Right to a Good Faith Estimate
Providers and facilities must give you the good faith estimate:
Keep the estimate in a safe place so you can compare it to any bills you get later. After you get a bill for the items or services, if the billed amount is $400 or more above the good faith estimate, you may be eligible to dispute the bill.
For more information, review an example of what a good faith estimate may include (PDF) and examples of good faith estimates that do and don’t qualify for the dispute process (PDF).
Healthcare providers are required to provide clients who do not have insurance or who choose not to use their insurance for therapy services with an estimate of the cost of those services. The total cost for each client will vary depending upon the length of time and frequency of sessions that occur throughout the therapeutic relationship as determined by the initial assessment and continued evaluation of treatment needs and progress. A detailed list of possible services is provided. This estimate will be valid for the next twelve (12) months. Should any fee changes occur, or upon your request, Jenkins Family Solution Center, PLLC will provide you with a new good faith estimate.
