Your Rights, My Responsibilities
My intention is to embody the values of accountability, community-building, and respect in my practice. I am also committed to working along a sliding scale: click here to sign up for your free 20 minute consultation. During this intake, we’ll determine where you land on the sliding scale.
Good Faith Estimate
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. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are possible. 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. Your informed consent paperwork will have this information for your consideration
- 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.
