Medicare Assignment and Payment

Assignment is an agreement between Medicare and doctors and suppliers of health care equipment and supplies. To accept assignment means the providers or suppliers agree to receive direct payment from the Medicare program and to agree to accept the Medicare approved amount as payment in full for the service. The approved amount is composed of the Medicare Part B payment and the applicable deductible and coinsurance. The provider or supplier must make a reasonable effort to collect deductible and coinsurance amounts.
