Good Faith Estimate
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 the 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.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.  You can also 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 www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

Method of Payment on File


An active credit card must be on file or a retainer fee is required to receive services for all clients.  The card on file will be used for each session at time of service for self-pay clients.  For insurance clients, the card on file will be used for your co-pay at time of service as well as when your insurance has applied your deductible to the session or does not cover services.
