Medicare Assignment: Assignment means that your doctor, provider, or supplier agrees (or is required by law) to accept the Medicare-approved amount as full payment for covered services.

Participating providers have signed an agreement to accept assignment for all Medicare-covered services.

The NPI must be used in lieu of legacy provider identifiers in the HIPAA standards transactions.
