Navigating in Woods

Under the No Surprises Act, health care providers must provide patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance with an estimate of the total cost for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. 

  • Your health care provider should provide this Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one (1) business day prior to your service.  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.

  • Be sure to retain a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.
