Machine-Readable Files

The Transparency in Coverage Final Rule requires plans to publicly display in-network provider negotiated rates, historical out-of-network and allowed amounts through Machine-Readable Files on an internet website.  A machine-readable file can be imported or read by a computer system without human intervention.  These files are not meant to be used by members to search for rates, benefits or cost sharing amounts.  Members should log into their Aetna portal account for access to this type of information.
