Excellus BlueCross BlueShield Contracted Health Care Provider Rates

As part of the Federal Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), new Transparency in Coverage rules have been established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), including a multi-year initiative that requires health plans to share contracted prices for all health care items and services. The first phase of these requirements begins July 1, 2022.

  • In-network provider contracted rates for items and services
