PEOPLE OFTEN ASK...
How much do they cost, how do I pay
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE: *effective January, 2022
As part of what's known as the No Surprises Act, individuals who use self pay for services are entitled to a good faith estimate of medical and mental health care costs. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t 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. 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. or call me at xx. Here's a fact sheet
Another, wordier but more conversational and informative version: The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 was enacted on December 27, 2020, and contains many provisions to help protect consumers from surprise medical bills under what's known as the No Surprises Act. The protections took effect on January 1, 2022, and apply to all healthcare providers in the U.S.
