Good Faith Estimate Notice
Under the law, health care providers, including behavioral/mental health therapists, need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance, a document with a written estimate of the expected charges for services when such an estimate is requested by the patient. This document is called a "Good Faith Estimate".
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare service, including psychotherapy services. You can ask any provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service or at any time.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit https://www.cms.gov/nosurprises
