No Surprises Act / Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

 

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.

I am considered an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies.  This arrangement allows me to provide quality services without the constraints that insurance companies sometimes impose on treatment.  A substantial portion of my fee is often reimbursed through your insurance plan provided that you have out-of-network coverage and my fees are generally considered to be within the acceptable range by most insurance companies.  Upon request, I will provide you with an invoice that contains all of the necessary information to easily apply for reimbursement from your health insurance provider.  If you choose to apply for reimbursement, the process is not as overwhelming as it might seem and I will be glad to assist in making it as smooth as possible. 

Prior to beginning therapy, I recommend that you check with your health insurance company to determine your out-of-network coverage.  In addition to you being reimbursed by them for services provided, you may be able to use a health savings, flex spending, or other similar types of accounts to cover the cost of treatment.
