Good Faith Estimate

Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” on the cost of treatment.

This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.

There are a number of factors that make It challenging to provide an estimate on how long it will take for a client to complete therapeutic treatment. These factors depend on the individual client, the presenting issues, and the agreed upon treatment plan. Ultimately, as the client, it is your decision when to stop therapy.

Before our first appointment, I will discuss a Good Faith Estimate with you and will provide you a written copy. If you are a current client, you will receive a Good Faith Estimate as well.
