Good Faith Estimate
Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.
There are a number of factors that make it challenging to provide an estimate on how long it will take for a client to complete therapeutic treatment, and much depends on the individual client and their goals in seeking therapy. Some clients are satisfied with less frequent sessions while others see the therapeutic benefit of more frequent sessions. Ultimately, as the client, it is your decision when to stop therapy.
A Good Faith Estimate (GFE) will be available in writing and can be accessed through the Simple Practice portal.
I have provided here my current session fees, projected for a 12 month period with differing levels of sessions scheduled.
Good Faith Estimate Details for Individual Clients
Individual 50 minute session $155
Weekly 50 minute sessions for 50 weeks $7750
Bi-weekly 50 minute sessions for 50 weeks $3875
The above examples are provided to give an idea of the financial expectations for a calendar year. The frequency and duration is dependent on your individual needs and goals.
I look forward to talking with you and answering any questions you may have about the “No Surprises” Act and Good Faith Estimates.
