Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill through the patient-provider dispute resolution (PPDR) process. Under the PPDR process, you may request a payment review and decision from an independent company certified by HHS. These companies are referred to as Selected Dispute Resolution (SDR) entities. The SDR entity will decide what amount you must pay if your bill is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your good faith estimate from that provider or facility.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises/consumers, email FederalPPDRQuestions@cms.hhs.gov, or call 1-800-985-3059.


Usted tiene derecho a recibir una “Estimación de Buena Fe” que le explique cuánto le costará su atención médica. Según la ley, los profesionales médicos tienen que dar a los pacientes que no tienen determinados tipos de cobertura médica o que no utilizan determinados tipos de cobertura médica una estimación de su factura por artículos y servicios médicos antes de que se les brinden dichos artículos o servicios.

  • Tiene derecho a recibir una Estimación de Buena Fe del costo total estimado de cualquier artículo o servicio médico cuando solicite dichos artículos o servicios. Esto incluye otros gastos relacionados, como exámenes médicos, medicamentos recetados, equipos y gastos de hospitalización.
  • Si solicita un artículo o servicio médico con al menos 3 días laborables de anticipación, asegúrese de que el profesional o centro médico le entregue por escrito una Estimación de Buena Fe en el plazo de 1 día hábil tras la solicitud. Si solicita un artículo o servicio médico con al menos 10 días hábiles de anticipación, asegúrese de que el proveedor o centro médico le entregue por escrito una Estimación de Buena Fe dentro de los 3 días hábiles posteriores a la solicitud. También puede pedir a cualquier proveedor o centro médico una Estimación de Buena Fe antes de solicitar un artículo o servicio. Si lo hace, asegúrese de que el profesional o centro médico le da una Estimación de Buena Fe por escrito en el plazo de 3 días hábiles después de que usted lo pide.
  • Si recibe una factura de un profesional o centro médico que supere en al menos $400 su estimación de buena fe, puede impugnarla mediante el proceso de resolución de disputas entre pacientes y profesionales médicos (PPDR, por sus siglas en inglés). En el marco del proceso PPDR, puede solicitar una revisión y decisión de pago a una empresa independiente certificada por el HHS. Estas empresas se denominan entidades de resolución de disputas seleccionadas (SDR, por sus siglas en inglés). La entidad SDR decidirá el monto que usted debe pagar si su factura es por lo menos $400 más por cualquier profesional o centro médico que su estimación de buena fe de ese profesional o centro médico.

Si tiene preguntas o desea más información sobre su derecho a una estimación de buena fe, visite www.cms.gov/nosurprises/consumers, envíe un correo electrónico a FederalPPDRQuestions@cms.hhs.gov o llame al 1-800-985-3059.
