Approval of covered services for Medicare benefits is usually based on what is medically necessary. Under Part A, the health care providers are not allowed to charge more than what Medicare approves. Part B does allow "excess charges" for some services. The maximum excess charge allowed for most services is 15% more than Medicare's approved amount. Medicare pays most of the health care costs for those eligible, but significant gaps can leave large bills to pay. The Medicare Benefit Chart on the next page shows Medicare's benefits and the amounts for which you are responsible.
