Good Faith Estimate

Under the law, health care providers need to provide patients/clients who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill 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 has the responsibility to provide you with a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 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.
  • For questions or additional information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
