My Care Compare
This plan covers 40 lab tests up to the coverage maximum. What this means is that the plan will pay for certain health services up to a maximum dollar amount. You can choose any network lab provider you want; however, if you do your research, you could save yourself some money as some providers’ rates are above the coverage maximum.
Medical Mutual’s My Care Compare tool can help you control costs. This easy-to-use tool explores and compares services, locations and costs for not only blood tests and other lab services but X-rays, MRIs and CT scans; physical therapy and even some surgeries to name a few.
My Care Compare also compares patient satisfaction and quality ratings for physicians and facilities in your area.
For example, the chart below illustrates two providers’ rates for the same lab test. Notice how the coverage maximum influences how much you are responsible for paying.
