Forms & Consents: All of my current patients’ completed intake forms and signed consents are available to review in your Patient Portal under the “documents” tab.
No Surprises Act:
All prospective and current patients have access to my service fees by scheduling a phone call or requesting to book. None of my patients will ever receive surprise or unexpected bills from me that are not mutually agreed upon in our payment agreement.
‘Self-pay’ patients have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your medical care will cost before starting services with me.
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.
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, examinations, office visits, prescription drugs, and equipment (items or services reasonably expected to be furnished by this practice)
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 an estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit http://www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call my office at 650-468-0572.
