    Under this law that went into effect January 1, 2022 you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

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.
