Transparency in Coverage Final Rule

The AFL-CIO Health & Welfare Plan (the Plan) is required to provide certain information on a public website under a new federal government regulation, the Transparency in Coverage Final Rule (Rule). The Rule is intended to make health care pricing information available to the general public so that the public (and researchers, legislators and regulators) can better understand the health care system and its costs so that health care spending can be controlled.
