• Second file: Historical payments to and billed charges from out-of-network providers (the “Allowed Amount File”); and
• Third file: In-network negotiated rates and historical net prices for covered prescription drugs (the “Prescription Drug File”)—this particular MRF requirement is delayed until further notice.
The files must be publicly available and accessible free of charge without any restrictions.
