Transparency in Coverage Act
The Transparency in Coverage Act requires health plans to post machine-readable files (MRFs) that can be read by other computer systems which disclose detailed pricing data regarding network negotiated rates for items and services, and historical payments to and billed charges from out-of-network providers. This button is a link to our MRFs, which are in the CMS defined format (JSON) and are not meant for a member-friendly search of rates, benefits, or cost sharing.
