Good Faith Estimate of Services
In accordance with the “No Surprises Act”, Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, effective 01/01/2022, healthcare providers are required to provide a “good faith” estimate of expected charges for services to individuals not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a federal health program, both orally and in writing. This paperwork serves as an in writing “good faith” estimate for services rendered.
As part of this paperwork, you will also receive a master list of most potential CPT codes that could prospectively be billed and their full pricing so you will reasonably know the absolute most you could be paying for any given service. Given the nature of therapy services, typically exact estimates are difficult to predict due to not knowing severity of symptoms, recommended frequency of services, length of time of services, and any other variables.
