On all Medicare-covered expenses, a doctor or other health care provider may agree
to accept Medicare "assignment." This means the patient will not be required
to pay any expense in excess of Medicare's "approved" charge. The patient
pays only 20% of the "approved" charge not paid by Medicare.
Physicians who do not accept assignment of a Medicare claim are limited as to the
amount they can charge for covered services.
