Transparency in Coverage - Machine Readable Files
The Transparency in Coverage rule released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Labor, and the Department of the Treasury requires group health plans, such as Stanford’s, and health insurers to make price information available to consumers. We are required to post the following links for each of our medical plan vendors effective July 1, 2022. The information available through these links is provided in good faith compliance with the Machine-Readable Files approach. These files display negotiated rates for covered items and services between the health plans and in-network providers for the plans. Some in-network provider arrangements do not prescribe rates for all covered items and services. In those cases, the provider’s reimbursement might be determined in several different ways, but this file would not contain that information. Pharmacy Machine readable files are not an enforced requirement and will not be available.

Medical Contribution Assistance Program
If you qualify, Stanford will help you pay your contributions to your university-sponsored medical plan when you cover your family.
ACA Plan for Temps & Casuals
If you are a casual/temp employee, you may still be eligible for minimum essential medical coverage for you and your dependent children to age 26.
