Self/Private Pay

Nutritious Thoughts can provide you with a “super bill,” which you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.  If you are a self/private pay client, we ask that you keep a card on file and pay at the time of service.

Good Faith Estimate

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost, so as of January 1, 2022, if Nutritious Thoughts is not filing directly with your insurance, a Good Faith Estimate will be provided by upon scheduling and/or as requested. While it is difficult to predict the number of sessions you might ultimately need, we strive to be as open as possible about cost of treatment during your process.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit
