Good Faith Estimate
Per the No Surprises Act of 2022, you are entitled to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of what the approximate charges could be for psychotherapy services provided to you. Every effort will be made to honor this estimate with the understanding that it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many psychotherapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a specific client or couple.
Understanding Your Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges Under the No Surprises Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to provide individuals who are not enrolled in any insurance plan and do not have coverage under a Federal health care program (that is, Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare), or not planning on filing a claim with their plan or coverage, with an estimate of the cost for the services being requested. This estimate is to be provided both orally and in writing. It is to represent only an estimate, but one made to the best of the ability of your provider.
While it does not have to be exact, the law gives you the authority to contest any bill that is $400 or more higher than the estimate. If the provider has reason to believe that the estimate is inaccurate, the estimate can be updated but only for future services. You can refuse to continue to seek care from the provider if an updated estimate of future charges is more than you wish to pay. There is no requirement that once you start receiving services, you cannot stop.
A gentle reminder that a Good Faith Estimate is not a bill, it is simply an estimate.
