No Surprises Act Notice

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the No Surprises Act, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.   


You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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 or call (800) 985-3059. 

Once we have scheduled an initial session, I will provide you a Good Faith Estimate. As I don't practice a one-size-fits all approach, it is not possible for me to tell you how many sessions you will need to meet your goals. I provide an estimate with some cost examples for different length therapies. Of course, you are in charge of when you schedule sessions and in what frequency, so "surprises" are naturally limited.
