Welcome to Butterfield Oxygen & Medical Equipment, your trusted partner in providing top-notch medical equipment and services. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the process of obtaining a Good Faith Estimate, ensuring transparency, and offering peace of mind when it comes to your medical needs.

Understanding the Good Faith Estimate

The Good Faith Estimate (GFE) is an essential document provided by healthcare providers to give patients a comprehensive breakdown of the costs associated with their medical treatment. It outlines the estimated expenses, charges, and payments associated with a particular medical procedure or service.

At Butterfield Oxygen & Medical Equipment, we believe in complete transparency, and the GFE plays a crucial role in helping our patients make informed decisions about their medical treatments. By equipping you with a detailed breakdown of the estimated costs, we ensure there are no surprises when it comes to your medical expenses.

Why the Good Faith Estimate Matters

Obtaining a Good Faith Estimate is crucial for multiple reasons.

Financial Planning

With the rising costs of medical treatments, financial planning is essential for both individuals and families. The GFE helps you understand and plan for the expenses associated with your medical procedure, allowing you to budget and explore funding options, such as health insurance or medical financing facilities.


Transparency is at the heart of our values at Butterfield Oxygen & Medical Equipment. The GFE empowers our patients by providing a clear breakdown of costs, ensuring there are no hidden fees or surprises along the way. We believe that transparency builds trust, and we strive to cultivate long-lasting relationships with our valued patients.

Informed Decision-making

Medical procedures and treatments can be complex, and it's important to have all the necessary information to make an informed decision. The GFE enables you to compare different treatment options, understand the expected costs, and explore alternative solutions if needed. We value your involvement in the decision-making process and are always here to address any questions or concerns you may have.

  • Itemized list of medical services or procedures
  • Associated costs for each service or procedure
