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 must give patient’s who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of medical services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost on any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescriptions drugs, equipment and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one 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 you save a copy or a picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
