Health Care Rebates Headed for Michigan Insurance Customers

Thousands of Michigan health insurance customers will get money back because of a provision in nation’s health care law.

The law requires insurance companies to spend at least 80% of the premiums they collect on medical care and quality improvement or return the difference to consumers and employers.

Right now the federal government has almost $13.2 million in refunds.

That means more than 184,000 insurance customers will be seeing some sort of money back.

Policyholders who qualify for a rebate will either get a check or see the reimbursement on their credit card, as well as a reduction in future premiums.
