No Surprises Act

Effective January 1, 2022 a ruling went into effect called the “No Surprises Act” which requires practitioners to provide a “Good Faith Estimate” for out-of-network care. Under the law, health care providers must provide uninsured or self pay patients the cost of services that are expected for your health care needs. 


The Good Faith Estimate’s objective is to increase patient awareness of their medical expenses and give an overview of projected services. For existing patients we will provide  a Good Faith Estimate at the beginning of each year, and while onboarding for new patients.   To learn more about this law please visit: https://www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
