Good Faith Estimate

Under a new law (No Surprises Act), you have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost, if you do not have insurance or will not be submitting a claim to your insurance.

Your Rights Under the No Surprises Act

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total cost of any non-emergency services. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 day before your medical service. You can 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. 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 or  call the Federal No Surprises Help Desk at 1-800-985-3059.
