Disclaimer for Good Faith Estimate for Cash Pay Patients
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities
are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care
program, or not seeking to le a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their
ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good
Faith Estimate” (GFE) of expected charges. The GFE shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for services provided by BLAST per session. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created. It does not take into account any reimbursement that you may receive as a result of out of network benefits.
The 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 you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill.
You may contact Dr. Katie Enney, Clinical Director of BLAST Programs to let her know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask her to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.
