No Surprises Act

What is the No Surprises Act?

The No Surprises Act provides patients with protection from surprise medical bills under certain circumstances.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 their bill for medical items and services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

If desired, your healthcare provider can give you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. To determine the total fee for psychological services with our practice, please refer to the MPS PLLC financial contract. If you have any question about MPS fees or billing policies, please address these directly with your provider or by emailing: [email protected].

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
