FL health insurance plans owe $124M in rebates
1.3 million Floridians can expect a rebate from their health-insurance company this summer, according to a report released Thursday from the Department of Health and Human Services. In all, health insurance plans will pay out $124 million in rebates to 736,000 Florida households by Aug. 1. The refund, which averages $168, comes courtesy of the health-care overhaul that took effect last year. The total rebate due Florida residents is the second highest in the country, bested only by Texas, where consumers and businesses can expect $167 million in rebates, according to the report's state-by-state breakdown.
