Is there a maximum amount to pay on FED MED/EE tax?

Unlike Old Age and Survivors Disability Insurance (OASDI, aka Social Security), FED MED/EE (Medicare Tax) is not capped.

FED MED/EE is 1.45% of taxable wages up to $200,000. For wages above $200,000, an additional 0.9% tax is paid by employees for a total of 2.35% of all wages over $200,000.
