You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency services. 
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing. Dr. Artson’s Office Policy Form serves as a good faith estimate before therapy begins that you will sign showing agreement to the terms specified.
  • If you receive a bill that is more than your Good Faith Estimate, you are encouraged to discuss the discrepancy with the provider prior to any dispute of the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate (Office Policy Form).
