Accepting assignment means that:

  1. you will accept as payment in full the allowed amount established by the payer (Medicare or any other payer you are contracted with) and
  2. the payment will be sent directly to the provider for services rendered.

Providers may accept assignment on a case-by-case basis unless they are contracted with the payer, in which case they usually are participating with the payer and accept assignment.
