You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” which will explain how much your medical care will cost. It will provide the total expected cost of non-emergency services.

As per Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, called the “No Surprises Act”, health care providers have to provide patients without insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical services. Make sure that you receive this estimate at least 1 day before your appointment. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your “Good Faith Estimate”, you can dispute the bill.

For questions or more information about your right to Good faith Estimate, visit  or call HHS at 1-800-958-3059
