Important Transparency in Coverage Machine Readable File Information

Transparency in Coverage (TIC) regulations, effective July 1, 2022, require health insurers and group health plans to create machine readable files (MRFs) that contain the negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts derived from historical claims for out-of-network providers and make those files publicly available. A machine readable file is a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read by a computer system for further processing without human intervention.

These files follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) defined layout and are in the CMS approved format (JSON) and are not meant for a consumer-friendly search of rates, benefits, or cost sharing. These files will be published on anthem.com/ca and kp.org and will be updated on the first day of each month. Please refer to the member resources available through anthem.com/ca and kp.org for this information.

The links (https://www.anthem.com/ca/machine-readable-file/search; kp.org) will allow you to search for your files using your Employer Identification Number (EIN).
When using the search option, the page will display links to several files, including:

  • Applicable In-Network Negotiated Rate Files
  • Out-of-Network Allowed Amount Files
  • Out-of-Area Rates (applicable when members use providers in non-Anthem states.)

Anthem is committed to delivering on meaningful transparency efforts that help consumers make informed healthcare decisions and in supporting the Transparency in Coverage regulations, as outlined by the Tri-Agencies.
