Ending Surprise Medical Bills

You are entitled to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” detailing the anticipated costs of your medical and mental health treatments. As per regulations, healthcare providers are obligated to furnish uninsured patients or those not utilizing insurance with an estimate of charges for medical services, including psychotherapy. You have the privilege to request a Good Faith Estimate for the complete projected expenses of any non-emergency healthcare, encompassing psychotherapy, from your chosen healthcare provider or any alternative provider prior to scheduling a service. Should you encounter a bill exceeding your Good Faith Estimate by at least $400, you retain the right to contest it. It’s advisable to retain a copy or snapshot of your Good Faith Estimate for reference. For questions or details regarding your entitlement to a Good Faith Estimate, please visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
