Machine-readable files (MFRs) must be published on a publicly available site based on the enforcement date of July 1, 2022, for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2022. Files will be updated on a monthly basis. These files provide pricing data for covered items and services based on in-network (INN) negotiated payment rates and historical out-of-network (OON) allowed amounts.
Lucent Health partners with Healthcare Blue Book (HCBB) for INN MRF files. INN MRFs are posted on the following link. For OON MRFs, employers are encouraged to work with their Account Executive as Lucent Health offers a solution with HCBB.
