Machine-readable files are a requirement of the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule.
Health insurers are required 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 and may include prescription-drug pricing. The files are in a format required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
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.
