You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
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 expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy 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. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

“I wanted you to know I feel profoundly lucky I found you when I did. I learned so much from you about myself and anxiety, I know I am a much better person and parent today for having spent time with you. When I first met with you I felt like a shell of a person and had a marriage that made me miserable. Now I feel I’m at the opposite end of the spectrum. Our family life is really wonderful. I have a great relationship with my husband.”S. G., 46 year old female
