The No Surprises Act was enacted in 2020 with the goal of protecting patients from unexpected bills for healthcare services, such as charges for out-of-network emergency care. Many of its provisions do not apply directly to us as the providers at Mending Hearts & Minds, or to you as our patients. However, beginning January 1, 2022, we are, as mental health providers, required to provide you with a good faith estimate of the cost of our services if you are self pay or we are out of network for your insurance company.  It is easy for you to estimate the cost of your therapy with us by simply multiplying the cost of our sessions ($150) X the number of sessions you attend. However, we will provide at the first session an estimate of cost of services. We will also upload that form into your patient portal where it will be accessible to you throughout your counseling.
