OWC Posted Notice: No Surprise Act, Good Faith Estimates
Optimized Wellness Center (OWC, 81-1851434) is compliant with (PHSA 2799B-6; 45 CFR 149.610) and will provide the right to good faith estimates in advance of scheduled services/items or upon request. If all the appropriate information is provided by the patient, including name, email address, health concern(s) among other things, OWC will provided to patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage for example self-pay and Medicare individuals even if the individual has a health benefits plan under chapter 89 of title 5, United States Code, but does not seek to have a claim submitted to their plan, issuer, or carrier for the item or service.
OWC will provide in an appropriate and timely manner an estimate, furnished either by paper or electronically and orally for scheduled, requested items or services as well as those that are reasonably expected to be provided. Services will be provided by Dr. Heath DC, CCEP, MBA (33437) or an authorized representative of Optimized Wellness Center located at 3800 Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA 94611 or via an agreed-upon means of synchronous and/or asynchronous communication.
Depending on when you schedule your appointments and based on the information the patient provided OWC will give the patient a Good Faith Estimate within 1-3 days. The patient can also ask us for a Good Faith Estimate before scheduling services or purchasing an item. A Good Faith Estimate does not obligate purchase.
The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created. Unknown, unexpected costs for things like complications and special circumstances will not be included. The more detailed information provided, the more detailed the estimate OWC can offer. Once OWC meets the patient and performs our own evaluation the initial estimate may change. Moreover, as we progress through care it may be determined that the patient needs additional services/products, the patient has either reached maximum medical improvement, or sufficient improvement was achieved not warranting additional care. It is also possible that new issues arise that merit further investigation and possibly care which was not initially foreseen. If the patient receives a bill that is substantially more than the Good Faith Estimate the patient may pay a fee and initiate a dispute resolution.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill.
