Transparency in Coverage

Under the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule, Group health plans are accountable for publishing the pricing for their plans. To support group health plans that leverage BCBSTX for network negotiation and claims processing, BCBSTX will generate the In Network and Out of Network Files for all plans administered by BCBSTX and required to comply with the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule. These files are updated monthly, free of charge, without requiring personal identifying information or logging into an account and can be accessed starting July 1, 2022.
