As we informed you in October 2021, the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule requires health insurers and some employers to publicly display certain health care price information via machine-readable files on their websites beginning July 1, 2022. These machine-readable files will include negotiated rates with in-network providers and allowed amounts for out-of-network providers. The files are in a format required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
What this means for you:
These files will include the place of service (POS) code, your federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and your National Provider Identifier (NPI).
If you’re using your Social Security number as your TIN, we encourage you to register for a new TIN and update us through our Demographic Change Form.
