How CMT Can Help

CMT has integrated solutions and platforms that give laboratories and physicians a Good Faith Estimate and an AEoB tool that understands a patient’s insurance benefits, out-of-pocket cost, and health plan policy: seeQer. Features included with seeQer are designed to provide solutions for the new Surprise Billing Legislation and answer the following common questions:

  • What are the Patient’s Insurance Eligibility and Benefits?
  • What is the Health plan’s Coverage and Medical Policy of the Service or Test?
  • What is the Patient’s and Health Plan’s Financial Responsibility for this test?
  • What Medical Management is Required?

seeQer can provide these answers in real time through our single platform tool for the ordering physician, facility, lab, or health plan. CMT’s vision is to improve patient access to care and remove barriers to diagnostic testing and healthcare through a sustainable solution that efficiently navigates the complex landscape involving payors, laboratories, physicians, and the patient.
