Good Faith Estimates

No Surprises Act & Good Faith Estimates

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical or mental health care will cost. Effective January 2022, under the new law (Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act), health care providers need to give clients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for planned services.

 

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.

  • You can ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

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

  • For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019

Dr. Kehle-Forbes will provide a Good Faith Estimate for Services after you schedule an initial appointment. Please ask if you would like one prior to scheduling.
