Responsible Party/Insurance Holder Information

The Fee Policy provides the rates you will be charged for a specific service should you lose your Third Party coverage (Medicare, Insurance, Medicaid, Board Funding, Contract, etc.), if you do not have Third Party coverage, if you choose to pay for a service that is not covered by your Third Party coverage, or if Board Funding is depleted.


These rates apply for individuals who are on a board subsidized sliding fee scale, are 100% self-pay, or who choose to pay for a service that is not covered by Third Party coverage. If you have a Third Party plan such as Medicare or Insurance, etc. you are responsible for copays, deductibles and any other portion that the Third Party plan indicates as your responsibility, at the time of service.


If you are eligible for subsidized board funding based on a sliding scale you will be charged the lesser of either the board sliding scale or the Third Party copay/deductible.


It is critical that you communicate any changes in your Third Party coverage right away to prevent any charges going to directly to you.

Insurance Coverage

OhioGuidestone is a non-profit organization supported in part by local Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Boards and various community agencies. Collection of the sliding fee/copay amounts that we offer to you as our client is essential in enabling us to continue to offer our services to the families in our communities. The Agency reserves the right to discontinue services if you refuse to pay your fees. Accounts that are delinquent by 60 days or more from the date of the invoice may be sent to a collection agency.


Please be advised that we are provided a limited amount of funding to support our sliding fee/copay; therefore you will be responsible for the full fee for services once funding is depleted. A fee of $35.00 may be charged for any returned checks. The fees charged are subject to change and any increase or decrease will be passed on to the client and Third Party payers. The Agency will provide you at any time, upon request, a listing of the current fees for services. See DETAILS OF ESTIMATE for additional information.

Total Estimated Cost

Good Faith Estimate Disclaimer

This Good Faith Estimate shows the cost of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.


The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, and your bill is $400 or more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate for that provider or facility, federal law allows you to dispute the bill.


The Good Faith Estimate is not a contract and does not require the uninsured (or self-pay) individual to obtain the items or services from any of the providers or facilities identified in the Good Faith Estimate.


If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you may have the right to dispute the bill.


You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.


You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.


If you dispute your bill, the provider or facility cannot move the bill for the disputed item or service into collection or threaten to do so, or if the bill has already moved into collection, the provider or facility has to cease collection efforts. The provider or facility must also suspend the accrual of any late fees on unpaid bill amounts until after the dispute resolution process has concluded. The provider or facility cannot take or threaten to take any retributive action against you for disputing your bill.


There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the Selected Dispute Resolution (SDR) entity reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate, reduced by the $25 fee. If the SDR entity disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.


To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to or call 1.800.985.3059.


For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit, email, or call 1.800.985.3059.
