What is Medicare Assignment for Physicians and Other Healthcare Professionals?
Physicians, other healthcare professionals, and group practices in this directory with an "M" icon next to their names choose to accept the Medicare-approved amount as payment in full on all Medicare claims, and only bill you for any deductible and coinsurance amounts.
Physicians, other healthcare professionals, and group practices in this directory without the "M" icon may not accept the Medicare-approved amount as payment in full, and their costs may be higher. This means you may pay more.
Healthcare professionals who aren't required to accept assignment are:
- Physical Therapist
- Psychologist who bills independently
- Occupational Therapists
Check with healthcare professionals to see if they accept assignment on Medicare claims and covered services.
