Health law rebates due from Mass. insurers
Massachusetts health insurance companies will pay out $45 million in rebates after failing last year to devote enough money to claims and quality improvement, according to a study of preliminary filings published Thursday by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. The rate of rebates issued by Massachusetts insurers is among the highest in the nation. But health care executives and experts note that Massachusetts has the strictest standards in the country, making it more difficult to avoid paying rebates.
