Transparency in coverage – Machine Readable Files

The Transparency in Coverage Final Rules issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, require certain group health plans to disclose on a public website information regarding in-network provider rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts and billed charges for covered items and services in two separate machine-readable files (MRFs).  The MRFs may require a software application to open the document(s).  Below the table is a list of software applications that may be used. The MRFs for the benefit package options under CommonSpirit Health’s and Dignity Health’s self-funded and fully-insured medical plans are linked below:
