Allowed Amount

What Does Allowed Amount Mean?

The maximum amount a plan will pay for covered health care services. It may also be referred to as an “eligible expense”, a “payment allowance”, or a “negotiated rate”.

If your provider charges more than the amount allowed under the plan, you may have to pay the difference.
