GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
Good Faith Estimates
Most adults say they worry about unexpected medical bills. Starting in January 2022, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges. This new federal protection, the “No Surprises Act”, will help patients estimate the expected charges they may be billed for receiving certain health care items and services.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost before you schedule an appointment or service, including medical tests and prescription drugs. It is important that you remember this is not a bill.
After your appointment, if you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you may be able to dispute the bill.
