Transparency in Coverage (TCR)
As part of new regulation of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), plans must provide cost transparency to participants and enrollees. The intent of the regulations is to provide a consumer with access to information on the cost of health care services before that consumer receives health care services, rather than after care is received.

Lower Chichester Township was settled in 1679, and incorporated as a township in 1682. It became a first class township in 1918. The original township was named after Chichester, an ancient city in the county of Sussex, England. That city was formerly called Cissancester, that is, the city of Cissa, because it was built by Cissa, the King of the South Saxons.
