No Surprises Act
According to the No Surprises Act of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 ("CAA") health care providers must supply an estimate of expected charges for medical items and services at least 3 business days prior to the scheduled service or upon request for patients who do not have health insurance or patients who elect to self-pay. As of January 1, 2023, this Good Faith Estimate must include expected charges for the items or services that are reasonably expected to be provided along with the primary item or service, including laboratory and pathology services. In order to be in compliance, Minnesota Pathologists Chartered is providing our professional component fee schedule for use in calculating a Good Faith Estimate. If your insurance is considered “In Network”, then the provisions of the No Surprises Act do not apply.
If you would like a Good Faith Estimate or have questions about any information in this notice, please reach out to Minnesota Pathologists Chartered at 320-231-4500 and as to speak to a pathologist about the No Surprises Act.
