Allowed Amount


The amount of the billed charge the insurance company considers payable by the plan.


A medical provider bills for an intermediate office visit. The amount the doctor charges is $75.00. The health insurance company allows $50.00 for an intermediate office visit as negotiated with the doctor. The benefit is then paid at 90% of this allowed amount of $50.00. The total payment is therefore $45.00.
