The Transparency in Coverage requires health plans and plan sponsors to make in-network and out-of-network machine-readable files available to the public effective July 1, 2022. The link below includes a Table of Contents (ToC) file unique to BARC Developmental Services, Inc. The Table of Contents file contains a series of links to both in network MRF files specific to our plan(s) and out-of-network MRFs specific to our organization. If you contract separately with health systems or medical vendors, then those rates will not be included within the files.
When you click on the link, what you’re seeing in your browser is the .JSON open-standard format which is being used to comply with CMS as an approved GitHub schema. It’s more legible when you open it in a .JSON reader, like Notepad or Notepad++ or when you download a Chrome extension, JSONVue.
Even though the link is required to be posted on a public site, the files are expected to be used by researchers, government entities and data aggregators to develop comparative data across health insurance issuers. The machine-readable files are not intended for use by members or customer non-technical business users.
