NO SURPRISES ACT-
Federal Legislation rolling out 2022- You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care/mental health services will cost if you do not have insurance. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using in network insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Effective 2022, your rights are outlined as followed:
●To receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services that will will not be billed to in network insurance. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. For the purposes here, the only possible related costs will be the other fees or session fees outlined in my fee disclosure and estimates not billed to in network insurance.
●Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business daybefore your medical service. For the purposes here, my fee disclosure explains the rates for sessions. Should I refer you out for other services, you can ask the health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule the referred service.
●If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill (this dispute only will then apply when you were not billing in network insurance and were then given the Good Faith Estimate).
●Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
