No Surprises Act
Beginning January 2022, clients are entitled to be notified of the No Surprises Act, which protects clients from an unexpected balance bill (also called surprise or balance billing). This can happen when there is an emergency service or you can’t control who is involved in your care at an in-network facility. All providers at The Sibley Group are out-of-network providers. Our fees for all services are posted on our Explanation of Fees and are charged with our clients understanding laid out in the Psychotherapy Agreement. The following forms related to the No Surprises Act are provided to inform all clients of this law.
Each client has a right to decide how long they would like to participate in mental health care. At the start of treatment and regularly throughout, your therapist will discuss with you the frequency of sessions needed, and you will decide based on those recommendations.
All TSG Therapists are Out-of-Network Providers. Please discuss this notice with your TSG Therapist, and answer the following two questions:
- Do you have health insurance for behavioral and mental health services?
- Do you plan to file TSG claims for out-of-network reimbursement?
If you answer YES to both of these questions, then you do not need to complete any documentation related to the No Surprises Act legislation. If you answer NO to either of these questions, then you will need a Good Faith Estimate for your services at TSG. Please notify your therapist.
We will provide you with a good faith estimate on an updated Explanation of Fees Form for you to sign and return to your therapist.
