Machine Readable Files

Important: Transparency in Coverage Machine Readable File Information

Transparency in Coverage (TIC) regulations require health insurers and group health plans to create machine readable files (MRFs) that contain the negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts derived from historical claims for out-of-network providers and make those files publicly available. They must be made available on an open access website effective July 1, 2022.

A machine readable file is a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read by a computer system for further processing without human intervention.  These files follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) defined layout and are in the CMS approved format (JSON) and are not meant for a consumer-friendly search of rates, benefits, or cost sharing.

Beginning July 1, 2022 Anthem will publish the MRFs for the plans they administer and maintain. These files will be published on and will be updated on the first day of each month. 

The following link will allow you to search for the MEABT files using our Employer Identification Number (EIN):  01-0479776.  When using the search option, the page will display links to several files, including:

  • Applicable In-Network Negotiated Rate Files
  • Out-of-Network Allowed Amount Files
  • Out-of-Area Rates (applicable when members use providers in non-Anthem states.)
Maine Education Association

MEA formed as an association in November 1859. Over the ensuing 150 years the Association’s mission has remained remarkably unchanged. The words may vary, but the core beliefs remain the same. Our mission is and has been:

  • to improve the quality of education for each student in our classrooms;
  • to ensure public support and adequate funding for public education;
  • to ensure access to a free education – free from cost, but also free from fear and discrimination;
  • to raise the standards for the profession;
  • to secure the autonomy of the profession; and
  • to advance the interests and welfare of educators.
