Good Faith Estimate Notice
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, healthcare 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 healthcare 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 health care 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.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 585-594-6720.
Diversity and Inclusion
Human diversity is not only respected but celebrated at Westside Psychological Services. We strive to embody a spirit of inclusion and engagement that honors the individual differences and socio-cultural identities of our staff, students, and clients alike. By continuously identifying and addressing our own personal biases, we remain devoted to the ongoing development of cultural humility. Our commitment to strengthening cultural competence within our team and our students allows us to affirm and explore with clients the impact of areas such as Socioeconomic status or class, sexual orientation, gender identity, communication styles, race, ethnicity, country of origin, age, family roles and structure, health, areas of ability, religion and spirituality, culture, trauma, and politics on their daily lives. In doing so, we can offer sanctuary, healing, and hope to those impacted by the effects of prejudice, discrimination, homophobia, careless language, and overarching inequality present in our country today.
