Good Faith Estimate

Your Consumer Right

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your mental health services will cost.

Under the law, health care professionals need to provide individuals who don’t have or intend to use their health insurance an estimate of the expected costs for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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 of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
