Transparency In Coverage 

Transparency Rules require that non-grandfathered, insured, and self-insured group health plans, post machine-readable files on a public site. For this purpose, a public site is a site that can be accessed by any individual without the use of a log-in or password, or any other form of identifier.  The link opens a JSON and .gzip file formats which are intended to be machine-readable in accordance with the Transparency in Coverage legislation and are not necessarily intended for the general consumer.  They are intended for researchers and other Health Care stakeholders and the file format is dictated by CMS.gov. Because of this, special software or tools may be required to open and navigate the files, and BCBS encourages clients to engage their internal IT teams for guidance on approved software and tools to support review of the files
