What is a "good faith estimate" and how do I receive one?
If you are paying for therapy out-of-pocket, you are entitled to a written "good faith estimate" of expected charges before receiving therapy according to federal law.
Unlike physical medical care, there are several factors which make estimating how long it will take a client to complete therapeutic treatment difficult: goals and personal factors may influence the length of treatment. We will do our best to provide you an estimate reflective of your needs. Clients may receive an estimate upon request or following the initial assessment.
