Standard Notice: “Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges” Under the No Surprises Act


Beginning January 1, 2022: If you’re uninsured or you pay for health care bills yourself ("self-pay"; you don’t have your claims submitted to your health insurance plan), providers and facilities must provide you with an estimate of expected charges before you receive an item or service.


You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost


Under this law, health and mental health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or 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. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health or mental health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health or mental 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.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.


For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call HHS at (800) 368-1019.

Welcome

Deciding to start therapy is hard; finding a good counselor can be overwhelming.

Whether you are starting therapy due to a recent crisis or to resolve past hurts, it does not mean there is something wrong with you. It means you need some resources, perspective, education, or receive direction.

Once you have made a decision to see a therapist, you still might be apprehensive about the process. Many people feel nervous before their first appointment. Therapy is a shared journey - shared process. It is ultimately your journey and you will make your own decisions. The therapist does not have answers to all your concerns, but the therapist does have the ability to listen carefully and will ask thoughtful questions. Your answers to these questions will help shape the direction of our work. You can expect to be respected. You can expect that your therapist will offer opinions and suggestions without telling you what to do.
