Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Effective January 1, 2022, a ruling went into effect, called the "No Surprises Act". Under the law, health care providers need to give patients, who do not 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.
- Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate, in writing, at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. 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.
- If you received a bill that is at least $400.00 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
