The No Surprises Act of 2022
You have a right to received a "Good Faith Estimate"
explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using their insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a GFE in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a GFE before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your GFE, you may dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your GFE.
