No Surprises Act
When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
patient billing protections
On January 1, 2022, Ivinson will implement the No Surprises Act (NSA), a law designed to protect patients against unexpected bills.
The law requires healthcare providers to provide good faith cost estimates to uninsured and self-pay patients before services are rendered; prohibits out-of-network providers and healthcare facilities from “balance billing,” or billing the difference between allowed charges and provider charges without notice and consent; and clearly outlines the complaint and dispute resolution processes.
right to receive good faith estimate
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 received 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 a picture of your Good Faith Estimate
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call our Patient Financial Services team at (307) 755‑4380.
