Quest Analytics Legislative Brief


Transparency in Coverage Final Rule CMS-9915-F

Accurate provider data is more important than ever. On October 29, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Labor, and the Department of Treasury released the final version of the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule. The rule requires most private health plans (self-insured, ERISA), including group health plans and health insurance issuers to publicly disclose the rates they pay healthcare providers for specific services. Although the rule is designed to provide consumers information about healthcare costs, it indirectly requires health plans to maintain an accurate public provider directory.

The Price Transparency Final Rule brief summarizes the key highlights of the rule and the strategies we’re discussing with our health plan partners.

The brief has been updated with the latest announcements as of October 13, 2021.
