STATUS OF GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE PROCESS
CURRENT AS OF JANUARY 2022
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill.
You may contact Family Centers Health Care to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.
If you are billed more than $400 above the amount on this Good Faith Estimate, you may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.
HHS charges a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If HHS, upon, reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If HHS disagrees with you and agrees with Family Centers Health Care, you will have to pay the higher amount.
