The Affordable Care Act’s Transparency in Coverage
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA) and the Affordable Care Act’s Transparency in Coverage (TiC) rules were recently passed with an aim to increase transparency about healthcare costs. One of these provisions (effective July 1st) now impacts companies offering employer-sponsored group health plans. Per this provision, insurance companies are required to provide links to “Machine Readable Files” (MRFs) that contain information about their fees and reimbursements for medical services as detailed below. As part of this requirement, employers are also responsible for posting a link to this information on their publicly available website before the end of your renewal month.
What this Means for Employers – Action Items
All you need to do is post the below link from BCBS on your public website before the end of your renewal month (October). It does not have to be conspicuous as long as it’s there, most companies are placing it in the footnotes (see example from our own OneDigital website).
