Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost 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 for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for
    a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • 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 the CMS Website

About The Fellowship

The KEY to the Fellowship process lies in the actual clinical exposure, which is guided by a mentor in that specialty and whose foundation is research/evidence based.  The clinical and case specific side is where the real learning occurs, and the Fellow is applying their base knowledge to clinical case situations.  The focus of the Fellowship is not merely on treatment, but also on diagnosis and management of various conditions.  The Chiropractic profession has a very well-established foundation for our chiropractic school curriculum and that level of education is equivalent to programs in medicine and osteopathy, however that is where we cease to keep up.  In medicine and osteopathy after a student graduates, they are a physician, but they are not yet board certified.  They will enter a medical residency program to receive further training in that area of specialty leading to Board Certification.  For example, residencies in Family Medicine are 3 years in length and seven years for neurosurgery.  Residency provides the clinical experience consistent with the medical specialty.   Once the residency program is completed, the physician can continue onto additional training within a Fellowship Program.   Examples of Fellowship Programs would be Cardiology, Vascular Surgery, Sleep Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, and Interventional Radiology.
