Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) screening test provides you with insight and expert recommendations to improve your health and fitness. Reviewing your results on a scheduled timeline helps you track your fitness lifestyle by measuring the effectiveness of actions that you’re taking to improve your health.

To get your best workout results, you should know your CMP results or chemical screen (CMP; CPT code 80053 ), which is a panel of 14 blood tests and serves as an initial broad medical screening tool. It provides an overall picture of your body’s chemical balance and metabolism. Metabolism refers to all of the physical and chemical processes in the body that use energy.  This test will give you information by screening the kidney, liver function, chloride levels (called electrolytes), blood sugar, cholesterol, calcium levels, sodium, potassium, protein levels, and electrolytes (minerals in the body).

The good news is that the CMP test may be covered by your yearly physical doctor’s visit. (*Caution – call your provider before requesting the tests).

Your doctor should know to best code the test as a Diagnostic Preventive Routine using Codes, 80053, 80047, 80048. You prefer Code 80053, which consists of the most complete tests.

Remember, it’s not just about getting the results; your doctor is required to explain your results and show how you can take action in order to improve your lifestyle routine(s).
