Good Faith Estimate
FOR OUT-OF-NETWORK SERVICES FOR INSURED PERSONS AND/OR SELF-PAY CLIENTS
Good Faith Estimate Introduction
You are entitled to receive this “Good Faith Estimate” of what the charges could be for psychotherapy services provided to you. While it is not possible for a psychotherapist to know, in advance, how many therapy sessions may be necessary or appropriate for a given person, this form provides an estimate of the cost of services provided. Your total cost of services will depend upon the number of psychotherapy sessions you attend, your individual circumstances, and the type and amount of services that are provided to you.
This estimate is NOT a contract and does not obligate you to obtain any services from the provider(s) listed, nor does it include any services rendered to you that are not identified here.
DISCLAIMER: This Good Faith Estimate is not intended to serve as a recommendation for treatment or a prediction that you may need to attend a specified number of psychotherapy sessions. The number of sessions that are appropriate in your case, and the estimated cost for those services, depends on your needs and what we agree to in consultation. You are entitled to disagree with any recommendations made to you concerning your treatment and you may discontinue treatment at any time.
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
This Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
