GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
- You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. The cost of services will be in the informed consent paperwork that you recieve before you begin therapy.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
