Important Information Regarding our Health Plan’s Machine-Readable Files (MRF)
Under the Transparency in Coverage regulation issued in 2020, group health plans and health insurers must post these two machine-readable files online. Machine-readable files are specific file types that can be read or downloaded by a computer system for further processing without human intervention. Access to the files must be publicly available free of charge and without restrictions (no passwords or other credentials). This data will provide opportunities for detailed research studies and data analysis, and offer third party developers and innovators the ability to create private sector solutions to help drive additional price comparison and consumerism in the health care market.
This link leads to the machine-readable files that are made available in response to the federal Transparency in Coverage Rule and includes in-network negotiated service rates and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and healthcare providers. The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data.
