Good Faith Estimate

Good Faith Estimate

OMB Control Number: 0210-0169

In compliance with the No Surprises Act that went into effect January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify clients of their Federal rights and protections against “surprise billing.”

This Act requires that I notify you of your federally protected rights to receive a Good Faith Estimate of services and associated fees as an out-of-network provider, and when clients are uninsured or elect not to use their insurance.

It is difficult to determine the true length of treatment for mental health care, and each client has a right to decide how long they would like to participate in mental health care or counseling services.

Please review, complete and sign in acknowledgement of receipt of this document prior to your next appointment. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Primary Services to be Provided

Services include psychotherapy in the context of Individual, Couples or Family Therapy and will be provided at a frequency determined by the client and therapist as treatment goals are identified and established. Therapy services are provided by Athen Fisher, LMFT or Penelope Hatter, LMFT. At this time, there are no items or services expected in addition to these services through Love Story Therapy, PLLC (LST).

Diagnosis Codes:

Psychotherapists do not diagnose individuals before meeting them and assessing their needs and overall functioning. Some individuals may not meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis and instead a Z code may be assigned, which represents the general areas of concern to be addressed in therapy. Please speak with your therapist if you have any questions or concerns about the diagnostic process or a specific diagnosis. Please note- as I am an out-of-network provider, your diagnosis will only be shared with an outside entity if you choose to submit a superbill to your insurance company after services are provided.

Common Diagnosis Codes:

– Adjustment Disorder (F43.23)

– Depression (F32.0-F33.3)

– Generalized Anxiety Disorder (F41.1)
