Good Faith Estimate
Under federal law, health care providers are required to give clients who don’t have insurance, or are not using insurance, a “Good Faith Estimate” of the anticipated costs for medical items and services over the course of a year. At PAC you will receive a Good Faith Estimate prior to your first appointment. Once a diagnosis is determined and a treatment plan is developed, you will receive a new Good Faith Estimate if the updated, anticipated costs are more than the initial estimate. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. To learn more about this new law, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-877-696-6775.
