Good Faith Estimate
If you don’t have insurance, or do have insurance and are choosing not to use it to pay for your care at HealthWorks, please let us know in advance so we can provide a good faith estimate of your expected charges. You may choose not to use insurance if the service you need isn’t covered, or it’s less expensive if you pay out of pocket.
In most cases, we can give you an estimate when you schedule care at least 3 business days in advance, or if you ask for one.
If your bill is at least $400 more than the good faith estimate we provided, you can dispute your bill.
