What are Medicare approved amounts for services?
Medicare has limits on the amount of money they will pay for specific services. When a doctor or medical facility submits a claim to Medicare, Medicare will tell the provider how much money they will pay. This is normally called the "allowed amount" or the "assignment." Only Medicare themselves have access to the actual dollar amounts.
