Plaza –Fully Insured with Providence
For Fully Insured and Administrative Services Only (ASO Groups)
Providence Health Plan is committed to ensuring that machine-readable file data is produced consistently and correctly. This is important data, and we take our responsibility not only to produce it but to do so accurately very seriously.
Like most insurers across the healthcare industry, we have come up against many technical and logistical difficulties to make these files accessible and are still working through some of these challenges.
We anticipate MRF data will be available on our website by July 30, 2022. This will NOT meet the mandated July 1, 2022, deadline.
For our fully insured and Administrative Services Only groups, Providence Health Plan will assume liability for this delay including any fines that are incurred. If you decide not to post the link…..the above statement from Providence should be saved by the plan administrator in your fiduciary file. You must have this statement from Providence on record.
