The No Surprises Act

Starting 1-1-22, the No Surprises Act took effect. The only difference when it comes to counseling is that now we are required by Federal Law to give you a “Good Faith Estimate” A “Good Faith Estimate” is simply an estimate of the cost of treatment when using an out of network provider or if one has no insurance. The Bravo Counseling Group, LLC is not in network with any insurance providers. The Bravo Counseling Group, LLC is considered “fee for service.” If clients choose, they can self-submit their receipts, aka “superbills,” to their insurance for reimbursement according to their plan.

When you call our office to enquire about an appointment, you will be given a “Good Faith Estimate” for your initial appointment, formally called a Diagnostic Interview. After that initial appointment, you will be given another “Good Faith Estimate” providing you with the estimated length and cost of treatment along with a Diagnosis.
