Atos Medicare Assignment - providing easier access to quality, proven products
Many of our products are eligible for Medicare Assignment pricing which means less out-of-pocket costs for you! For these products, patients with Medicare Part B coverage pay only 20% of the assignment pricing (determined by Medicare) once deductibles have been met. With a secondary or supplemental insurance plan that pays for Medicare co-pays and deductibles, there may be no out-of-pocket costs at the time of order.
What does Atos Medicare Assignment mean for you?
- Less out-of-pocket costs
- No waiting for additional reimbursement from Medicare
- No need to sign up – no extra paperwork, no box to check!

Atos Medical has a long-standing tradition of clinical evidence showing that our products perform well and are safe to use. We are proud to say we have more and stronger evidence for our products than any of our competitors. Our goal is to help the laryngectomy community by advocating for better access to necessary products with less out-of-pocket costs.
