You may obtain a good faith estimate of charges upon request prior to scheduling.
The No Surprises Act is a federal law which provides you with the right to a good faith estimate of the cost of services at this practice. However, Ohio licensing board rules require clinicians to provide you with the actual cost of charges in a written informed consent form to which you must agree prior to receiving services. That will be available to you prior to you being seen for services and prior to any billing. In most cases it is impossible to estimate how many sessions you will need, and that will not be determined until your concerns are evaluated and will also vary based on the progress that you make, which depends in part on your efforts with the process. You will be free to discontinue services at any time or the services may otherwise be terminated in accordance with the informed consent form language.
The No Surprises Law states that you may initiate a dispute process if the actual charges are substantially in excess of the Good Faith Estimate charges, i.e. if you are charged $400 more than the estimated cost for a session or for the total estimate provided. That is unlikely to happen and would be a violation of licensing board rules, since you will be agreeing up front to actual charges per session prior to being seen. Dispute information is available upon request, however. Any changes to fees will require a change in the informed consent form fees, which you must agree to prior to having them go into effect, otherwise the fees will remain in effect for 12 months.
