Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) and Transparency in Coverage Rule (TCR)

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA) was signed into law in December 2020. Among other provisions, the CAA includes many provisions that affect how health insurers and group health plans health care coverage. Since the CAA was enacted, the federal government issued guidance about the CAA. Recently, the federal government issued guidance that it is delaying enforcement of certain provisions of the CAA and will take a good faith compliance approach to other provisions. The CAA includes the following provisions: Surprise Medical Billing Patient Protections, Advanced Explanation of Benefits, Price Comparison Tool, Continuity of Care, Enhanced Provider Data Requirements, Changes to ID Cards, Broker and Consultant Compensation Disclosure, Pharmacy Benefit and Drug Cost, Air Ambulance Reporting, External Review/Complaint Process, Remove Gag Clauses on Price and Quality Information, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Parity.

On November 12, 2020, the Departments of Labor (DOL), Health and Human Services (HHS), and Treasury (collectively, the Departments) published the “Transparency in Coverage” final rule (Final Rule), imposing new requirements on group health plans and health insurers in the individual and group markets to disclose cost-sharing information, in-network provider negotiated rates, historical out-of-network allowed amounts, and drug pricing information. It also applies to Qualified Health Plan (QHP) issuers and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. The Rule follows the Hospital Price Transparency final rule, which required hospitals to make public a variety of pricing information and went into effect on January 1, 2021.

The Rule’s core requirements are to: 

  • Disclose to the public: 1) in-network provider negotiated rates, 2) historical out-of-network allowed amounts, and 3) drug pricing information, which has been postponed, pending further rulemaking, through three separate machine-readable files posted on an internet website
  • Disclose cost-sharing information upon request to a participant, beneficiary, or enrollee – including an estimate of the individual’s cost-sharing liability for covered items or services via an online tool, and in paper if requested; and 

The Rule adopts a three-year, phased-in approach for compliance with the Rule, which requires Plans and Issuers to provide:

  • Public access to in-network provider negotiated rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts for plan years that begin on or after July 1, 2022;
  • Cost-sharing information to participants, beneficiaries, or enrollees for all covered items and services for plan years that begin on or after January 1, 2024; and
  • Pending further rulemaking, public access to drug pricing information.

The Rule also allows health insurance issuers to receive credit in their Medical Loss Ratio calculations for programs that create shared-savings for members resulting from their shopping for, and receiving care from lower-cost, higher-value providers.
