Part A Surgery Example, Can You Explain 117k Approved, 24k Paid


New Member
I had Part A surgery recently and I was surfing through medicare online.
I see the surgery was lumped in one big charge:
117K charged
117K approved
24K paid

I kinda understand Part B charges and paid amounts.
But this Part A seems really bizarre.
I always expect a large delta between charged and approved,
and a small delta between approved and paid.
This example is the opposite.
Can you explain how "paid" is calculated?
