No Surprises Act

As of January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to provide estimates for the cost of your care. You are entitled to receive a copy of your Good Faith Estimate (GFE) when you schedule an appointment and/or upon request. The GFE shows the cost of services that are reasonably expected for your healthcare needs and treatment if insurance is not used or does not cover the service. This protects you from balance billing and other unexpected charges.

Nutrition by RD will provide you a GFE upon request. Please note that this GFE does not include unexpected costs that could arise during treatment, including cancellation, additional lab requests or no-show fees.

What is the estimate? Do I owe this amount?

This law requires healthcare providers to supply you with an estimate of the costs for your nutrition services at Nutrition by RD. While it is not possible for the dietitian to know, in advance, how many sessions may be necessary and appropriate for a given person, this document provides an estimate of the cost of services provided. Your total cost of services will depend upon the number and length of sessions you attend, as well as your individual circumstances.

The Nutrition by RD will provide an estimate of costs upon scheduling and/or as requested. Unexpected costs may include fees for outside referrals, cancellation and/or no-show fees and lab work.
