Good Faith Estimate

At Snowden ENT, we prioritize transparency in order to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the anticipated costs associated with your medical care. 

As mandated by federal law, we are required to provide you with a comprehensive Good Faith Estimate that summarizes the full expected expenses for your medical services if you do not have medical coverage or choose not to use it.

  • You have the right to receive a written Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before your scheduled or non-emergency visit. This estimate will include the projected costs of all items and services anticipated during your visit, such as medical tests, hospital fees, and prescription drugs. In the event of emergent situations or additional testing during your visit, you will receive an updated Good Faith Estimate at the time of care.
  • If you prefer, you may also request a Good Faith Estimate from your healthcare provider before scheduling a service. Please note that this estimate will be based on the available information at the time of scheduling. Keep in mind that the exact cost of care can only be determined after the evaluation, as the physician may recommend or require additional services.
  • It is crucial to save a copy or take a picture of your Good Faith Estimate for your records. This document will serve as a reference and provide clarity regarding the expected costs of your treatment.
  • Under the new patient-provider dispute resolution, you have the right to dispute a bill if it exceeds the Good Faith Estimate by at least $400, regardless of whether you have insurance or not. We are committed to working with you to resolve any billing concerns and ensure a fair and transparent process.

Our team at Snowden ENT is here to address any additional questions or concerns you may have regarding your Good Faith Estimate or the billing process. For further information about your rights under the No Surprises Act, we encourage you to visit
