Welcome to Certified Medical Interpreters, LLC
Sixty million Americans speak a language other than English at home. The stress of dealing with illness or injury combined with the often technical language utilized in healthcare settings, can easily create communication challenges for those who posses Limited English Proficiency (LEP). CMI stands ready to assist both providers and LEPs by partnering them with certified interpreters. All of our interpreters are nationally certified and have significant medical interpreting experience.
Working with a certified medical interpreter may also allow you to obtain reimbursement in some states. CMI will assist with the reimbursement process on your behalf to obtain payment in states that allow for reimbursement.
We are the first and only interpretation firm to exclusively use nationally certified medical interpreters.
Our medical interpreters are the most highly qualified interpreters in the country having received their national credentials from either The National Board for Certification of Medical Interpreters (A Division of IMIA-International Medical Interpreters Association) or Certification Commission for Health Care Interpreters.
Certified Medical Interpreters only hires interpreters that have solid knowledge of The Affordable Care Act, hospital operations and maintain the highest level of English accent reduction.
We partner with you to solve complex language access issues, assist you in increasing patient safety and manage your language services costs by getting the applicable reimbursement from various State and Federal programs.
We even do the paperwork for you to ensure that you can focus on the patient not the billing.
