No Surprises Act Information

Effective January 1, 2022, a ruling went into effect called the "No Surprises Act," which requires mental health practitioners to provide a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) to patients who do not utilize insurance and patients who have insurance but are out-of-network.

The Good Faith Estimate's purpose is to show the cost of services to avoid an unreasonably large bill. Your treatment and cost of treatment will vary based on your individual needs, amount of therapy sessions needed/wanted, and the type and length of services you attend. I have no way of predicting the exact amount of therapy sessions or services that will be needed; however, I will provide you with the cost of potential treatment services for reference. These amounts will be discussed before you agree to start seeing me and again during our intake. You will be provided with a document of the information we discuss as well. Please remember you can always discuss billing, cost, treatment plan, length of sessions, and amount of sessions with me at any time.

This document is NOT a contract and does not obligate you to obtain any services from me. The Good Faith Estimate is not intended to serve as a recommendation for treatment or prediction to attend a specific number of psychotherapy sessions nor does it provide an all-inclusive treatment plan. Therapy is and will always be voluntary and unique to fit your specific needs.
