No Surprises Act
In compliance with the No Surprises Act that went into effect on January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify clients of their federal rights and protections against “surprise billing.” Under this act, health care providers are required to provide clients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. According to this act:
-You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
-You should receive your Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your service.
-You can also ask your health care provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
For questions or more information regarding your right to a Good Faith Estimate, feel free to reach out to our office, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Insurance
Do you accept insurance?
We are considered out-of-network providers. May individuals with out-of-network benefits can receive either partial or full reimbursement for the cost of treatment through their health insurance. The amount covered varied based upon your individual insurance plan. After each session, you will be provided with a “superbill” that has all of the information necessary to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How do I know if I have out of network benefits or what they are?
The best and most accurate way to find this information out is to call your insurance company directly. Some important information to ask for is:
- Do I have out-of-network benefits?
- If so, what is my annual deductible, have I met it?
- What percentage do you cover for out-of-network mental/behavioral health?
- Do I need prior authorization, if so, how do I obtain it?
