about

On October 29, 2020 the federal government issued the Transparency in Coverage final rule requiring commercial health insurance providers and self-insured groups to provide health care price information to the public, as well as members, with phased deadlines. New regulations go beyond current price transparency solutions by requiring that health insurance providers plans publicly disclose reimbursement rates and provide cost-share details to members for all drugs and services by provider.

Price transparency is no longer optional. This session will review the new rules and share how health insurance providers can comply with the mandate and gain a business advantage by giving members a truly meaningful and personalized experience.

Attendees will:

  • Learn price transparency requirements and deadlines
  • Get insights from a health insurance provider that is accelerating compliance and turning it into a strategic advantage
  • Uncover ways to maximize compliance and support broader strategic initiatives
  • Find out what members want around transparency that aren’t in the final rule
