We desire transparency
Michigan and Federal laws have recently changed to improve the transparency of medical expenses that you may incur as part of your healthcare. We here at NW Sports Chiropractic are doing our best to stay up to date on these changes when they occur. Most recently, laws have been passed that require a “Good Faith Estimate” be provided that outlines the expected cost of services provided to you within healthcare offices. We have always strived to be as open and honest about the cost of your care. To the best of our ability, we will make these costs known to you before services are provided, whether verbally or in writing. If you are under-insured, non-insured, do not plan on utilizing your insurances’ chiropractic benefits, or have health insurance without chiropractic benefits, this Good Faith Estimate is designed to help you understand how much cost may occur if you seek care within our office. If we are not in-network with your insurance, you have the right to seek care at another chiropractic office. If you have questions about healthcare costs, do not hesitate to ask.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services.
⦁ You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate 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 health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or 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.
