ESTIMATE OF MEDICAL COSTS IN GOOD FAITH
You have the entitlement to obtain a “Good Faith Estimate” that outlines the anticipated expenses for your medical care. According to the law, healthcare providers are required to furnish patients without insurance or those not utilizing insurance with an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a written Good Faith Estimate detailing the projected overall cost of non-emergency items or services. This encompasses associated expenses such as medical examinations, prescribed medications, equipment, and hospital charges. Ensure that your healthcare provider furnishes you with a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your scheduled medical service or item. Additionally, you can request a Good Faith Estimate from your healthcare provider or any other chosen provider prior to scheduling a specific item or service.
Should you receive a bill that exceeds your Good Faith Estimate by at least $400, you have the option to dispute the bill. Remember to retain a copy or capture an image of your Good Faith Estimate.
For inquiries or additional information regarding your entitlement to a Good Faith Estimate, please visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
