Florida Blue Transparency in Coverage

From Florida Blue:
Below is the latest information regarding the Transparency in Coverage Requirements:
More Information on July 1 Implementation of Machine-Readable Files (MRFs)

The Transparency in Coverage final rules require non-grandfathered group health plans and health insurance issuers offering non-grandfathered coverage in the group and individual markets to disclose on a public website information regarding

  • In-network negotiated rates for covered items and services
  • Out-of-network allowed amounts and billed charges for covered items and services

As of July 1, 2022, these machine-readable files (MRFs) must be made "publicly available and accessible to any person free of charge and without conditions, such as the establishment of a user account, password, or other credentials, or submission of personally identifiable information (PII) to access the file" and must be updated on a monthly basis. The website where these MRFs will be housed is:

The site will also include a Table of Contents file with specific details on how to identify the file that applies to a specific health plan.
Groups may copy and paste the above link to their public website in order to comply with these rules.
Important notes about these files:

  • These files are extremely large (minimum file size is 20 GB) and are designed to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers with data related to payment rates for healthcare services.
  • Due to the size of these files, an individual's ability to view or download these files will be dependent on their hardware, browser, and internet speed.
  • The data on these files does not reflect the application of benefits or cost-sharing (deductibles, copayments, coinsurance) for a specific health plan.
  • Each MRF uses a standard data format and schema (JSON) defined by federal agencies.
  • For fully insured groups, there will be one MRF per plan network (BlueOptions, BlueCare, etc.).
  • For self-insured groups, there will be one MRF per plan network (BlueOptions, BlueCare, etc.) per group employee identification number (EIN). Users should contact their employer directly to obtain their EIN.
  • All MRFs will only include rates for benefits that Florida Blue or Truli for Health administers - rates for benefits that are "carved out" to other vendors (i.e., pharmacy) will have to be obtained from that vendor.
