    Physical therapists can participate in Medicare and accept assignment or not. If they accept patients that are covered under Medicare they must also adhere to Medicare fee schedules and guidelines for submitting and documenting claims.

    Therapists that accept assignment file your claim with Medicare and are paid by Medicare. Those that do not accept assignment still are required to file your claim but Medicare pays you, not the therapist.
