Transparency in Coverage
Under the “Transparency in Coverage Rules, the Housing Benefits Plan insurer, UnitedHealthcare, is required to make public certain “machine-readable files” showing (1) in-network negotiated payment rates, (2) historical out-of-network allowed amounts, and (3) in-network rates and historical costs for prescription drugs (NOTE: the requirement to provide this third file is not yet effective). As required UnitedHealthcare has posted these files on their website. For your convenience, here is a link to the UnitedHealthcare machine-readable files.”
Once on the Transparency in Coverage page, enter this file name in the search bar:
and hit search.The file will come up. Keep in mind that the files can be up to one terabyte in size, so system capacity and memory should be checked before downloading them. They are machine readable JSON files, not easily interpreted or searchable. To open them you will need to search for free applications supporting the download and viewing of JSON files. This can be a time consuming, difficult task. You may prefer to wait for a member-friendly consumer price transparency tool that will be available in 2023 and 2024.
