Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your care will cost.

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. With regard to therapy, this would include the cost of any routinely planned sessions. 

Make sure your therapist gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your first session. You can also ask your therapist for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a session.

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.
