Transparency In Coverage
The Transparency in Coverage Rule issued by the federal government requires health insurers and group health plans to provide detailed pricing data for all covered items and services to the public in the form of Machine Readable Files (MRFs). This information must be posted through a link to your public website beginning on July 1, 2022.
When individuals click on the link, they should select Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Pennsylvania.
