What is a Good Faith Estimate?

It is our best estimate regarding how much your 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.

What if my bill is higher than the estimate?

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

Why might the estimate be wrong?

There are some things that are hard to estimate.  For example, your provider may decide to give different tests after they meet with you, or you may have more records for us to review than we thought, or we may need you to come back a second time that was unplanned.   If we need to deviate from our original Good Faith Estimate we will inform you so that you can decide if  and how you want to proceed.

Who is eligible to receive one?

By law, Good Faith Estimates are required for patients who do NOT have insurance, or who do NOT want us to submit their bill to insurance.

However, even if you ARE planning to use your insurance, we should be able to give you a Good Faith Estimate regarding the cost of your care.

How do I get one?

To receive a Good Faith Estimate please contact Dr. Stacey Benson at 701-297-7540.

What if the service I am seeking is forensic and not medically necessary?

The law only applies to medically necessary treatments.  However, our forensic psychologists will provide an initial estimate to you based on expected costs of services.  This will be based off of our experience of doing similar evaluations over the past 20+ years.  All cases are different however.  Sometimes the final bill is more than the estimate, sometimes it is less.  Normally, when costs exceed the initial estimate it is because clients ask for us to do something more than what was originally agreed on.  If it looks like your case will go over the initial estimate,  your provider will discuss with you options for how to keep the costs down.
