    Cataract surgery is generally performed under Part B.  It will cover 80% of the approved amount.  If the doctor accepts Medicare then he will be required to accept whatever Medicare approves.  You are only responsible for 20%.  Some states allow 15% excess charges over what Medicare approves.  The exact amount Medicare approves would depend on the way the charge is billed.  Ask your doctor what Medicare usually pays.  This may help give you an idea of your responsibility.
