RIGHT TO RECEIVE A “GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE” UNDER THE NO SURPRISES ACT

Under a new federal law effective January 1, 2022, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much their medical care will cost. This Good Faith Estimate provides an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • Guests who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance 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.
  • 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.
