“Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges” Under the No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients:
- who don’t have insurance
- 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. Including:
- medical tests
- prescription drugs
- hospital fees
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one 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 scheduling an item or service.
- If you receive a bill 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.
