No Surprises Act

As of January 1, 2022 the “No Surprises Act” is in effect. This act establishes a requirement for health care providers to provide uninsured and self-pay patients with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) of their total out-of-pocket cost for services – upon request, or after they schedule an appointment.

This Good Faith Estimate (GFE) is based on our understanding of your needs at the time the appointment is scheduled.

For more information, please go to the Resource tab and select the Good Faith Estimate document to read more.
