Transparency in Coverage

Additional Employee Information

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 has numerous health care provisions establishing new standards for price transparency and patient protections against certain surprise medical bills. One of the key provisions of the TIC Rule requires health insurers and group health plans to post publicly available machine-readable files (MRFs) of all negotiated provider payment rates.

What’s included in the machine-readable files

The MRFs must include in-network (INN) negotiated payment rates based on every provider agreement in force, including INN and extended networks (such as the Blues network) for each group, plan, and network offering; and historical out-of-network (OON) reimbursement rates per contract for covered items and services. The MRF data must be updated monthly.

We are is preparing to implement access to Regence MRFs to meet the compliance deadline. Beginning July 1, 2022, you will be able to access the MRF query landing page shown below by clicking on the Transparency in Coverage link at the bottom of every public-facing page on and by visiting this link:
