That is why we are pleased to inform you that as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and United Healthcare must be transparent regarding the billing rates for covered medical items and services of in-network providers (e.g., doctors and hospitals) and out-of-network historical payments.

This information will be available and published to these Internet websites:
