The Right to a 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, including therapists, need to give patients/clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.  The Good Faith Estimate will provide information on your expected out of pocket costs.  You should expect to receive your Good Faith Estimate at least one day prior to your first appointment with us.
