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 and inform them of the following:
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) handles disputes initiated by patients.If you choose to use the dispute resolution system, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.
There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process.If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on the Good Faith Estimate.If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with your health care provider, you will have to pay the higher amount.
To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
