Good Faith Estimate Policy
About Your Right To Receive A Good Faith Estimate Of Expected Charges
Under the law, as a health care provider, I will give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
This estimate is called a "Good Faith Estimate" and explains how much your Therapy services will cost. Here are a few key things you should know about your Good Faith Estimate:
- 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 may ensure that I give you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 3 business days before your Therapy services or item. You can also ask me for a Good Faith Estimate prior to scheduling.
- If you receive a bill that is $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- It's recommended that you save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate for your records.
