Alaskans in some health insurance plans will be getting the biggest rebates in the country, according to a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The rebates are part of the Affordable Care Act, which requires insurers to refund money to consumers if they spend more than 20 percent of their premium income on administrative costs. In Alaska, the largest rebates will be more than $500.
Cynthia Cox is a Fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation and one of the authors of the report. She told APRN’s Lori Townsend two health plans in Alaska plan to issue rebates.
This interview is part of a reporting partnership that includes APRN, NPR and Kaiser Health News.
