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. Regulations are still emerging regarding the types of services Dr. Greenberg provides.
- 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. Please also review the limits and disclaimers on both Dr. Greenberg’s consent documents and any stipulation or order governing services. Dr. Greenberg has a regular practice of updating parties on additional unexpected costs and ways to reduce cost or promote better services.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can request a change to the bill or other assistance, or you can dispute the bill.
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and all other communications estimating costs. This message is not a contract, nor does it guarantee that Dr. Greenberg will decide to accept any particular case.
