Notice of Good Faith Estimate
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, healthcare providers and healthcare facilities are required to give patients who don’t have insurance or 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 nonemergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Tri-County Orthopedics, as your healthcare provider, will provide you with a good faith estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask our team 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.
