Good Faith Estimate Available under the No Surprise Act

Health care providers and facilities are required to provide a good faith estimate of expected charges for items and services to individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, under the No Surprise Act. Client or potential clients have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much the medical care is estimated to cost of any non-emergency items or services. A client can receive a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before their scheduled service or item, or they can request a Good Faith Estimate before they schedule an item or service.

Good Faith Estimates shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created. The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate.
