- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services.
- You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
