The NonlinearRegress reports the ParameterCITable. The Confidence intervals (error bars) are in that table in the column 'CI'. Usually these error bars are not independent because there is correlation between the model parameters, seen e.g. in AsymptoticCorrelationMatrix that the function also prints.
