Machine-Readable Files Update for Transparency in Coverage Rule Requirements
As part of the Transparency in Coverage Rule (TCR), health plans and self-funded groups are required to post certain cost and claims data through machine-readable files (MRFs) to a public website starting July 1, 2022.
As the effective date for the mandate approaches, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) has important updates on its compliance efforts.
To meet the mandate requirements, BCBSNE will post MRFs monthly on this public website: NebraskaBlue.com/MRFs
- MRFs will be available starting July 1, 2022, and will be updated monthly.
- Per TCR requirements, these files are in a machine-readable JSON format.
Please note: The MRFs website will not be live until July 1, 2022; however, a screenshot of the MRFs homepage is included for your reference below:
