Posted on 07/18/2013 5:52:19 PM PDT by george76
An estimated 8.5 million Americans will receive rebates from their health insurers this summer thanks to the Affordable Care Act, which says companies that fail to spend at least 80 percent of premiums on health care must refund the difference to consumers.
Obama today touted the benefit as part of his mid-summer push
The amount of the individual rebates varies widely by state and insurance company, depending on whether a consumer's insurer was in compliance with the law.
The largest average rebates will be seen in Washington state, where 3,007 consumers will receive an average $512 this summer. In Massachusetts, more than 473,000 people will see an average rebate of $457.
Other parts of the country will see lower average rebates, indicating that insurers in those states are meeting the so-called "80/20 rule" under Obamacare.
More than 633,000 New Yorkers will see an average rebate of $92 this summer, while in Missouri an average $72 will be refunded to 457,000 residents.

If Zimmerman is a white man then so is Obama by the same logic.
So my rate goes up $1500 a year and I gets $100 back as a gift. Big savings there. Sounds like a woman shopping for items on sale who comes home and announces to her husband how much money they saved.
COBRA is costing me $571/month. Retiree insurance (in 6 months) will be close to that.
A Whole $100 rebate? Geeeeeeee whiz, what a big spender./s
Let me guess... "rebates" will only go to those who DON'T buy insurance. Those of us who actually do pay for our own insurance will probably just get notices about more rate increases. Redistribution of wealth in action.
If you are on Medicaid and one of Holder’s People, you get $1000?
Don’t worry folks, it’s just propaganda
Exactly! Obama is such a putz! We get back $161 but in two months will probably go up another $150 per month like it did last year! Under Bush we had about $40-$50/year increases, under Obama that’s doubled or more.
He just makes me sick talking about things through his rose colored glasses but everything is almost in the red everywhere due to his non-actions. Everyday he seems to make Jimmy Carter look better...and JC makes me sick!
These are individual health insurance policies right? Cancellation notices to follow shortly.
Also a creepy, ass cracker. T killed in a botched miscalculated gay bashing incident and is guilty of civil rights violation. Check out “ass cracker” in urban dictionary online. That’s how he referred to Z by phone to his GF.
When cross examined at trial about what a crazy ass cracker was, the GF whispered, “pervert”. Wish West had stayed on the line of questioning.
My wife’s policy got a rebate last year, but, the rates increased more.
You’re right. The rebates will be more than repaid in the first month’s higher premiums in the fall enrollment period.
More likely - someone who is not you and pays no "rate" in the first place, will have theirs figured as: The estimated rate would be $900/month. You paid nothing because the tax payers have your back. Since the rate you aren't paying is really too high, we will rebate you to the tune of $150/month.
That sounds very plausible.
But it's all worth it, for a fictitious $100 rebate.
Who gets a check? the people who never contributed to it.
ass cracker in urban dictionary online. Thats how he referred to Z by phone to his GF.” .....”pervert”
Thanks I didn’t know that
Me either... my interpretation “Creepy ass cracker”
Apparently it is “creepy ass cracka”
Cracker being a descriptive noun for rural floridians.
cracka being a noun for queers
There were FReepers trying to inform us of the urban slang meaning immediately after the Jentel statement. They even posted links to Urban Dictionary.
He wanted the Public and the Jury to associate the term 'creepy' with George Zimmerman.
IMHO, what Trayvon said to Rachel was...
These T-SHIRTS were sold all over FLORIDA.
The term refers to a WANNABE COP, Security Guard, or..... A NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH VOLUNTEER. It would have ruined their case if Rachel said PUSSY ASS CRACKER (meaning TRAYVON KNEW George was a NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH VOLUNTEER).
Believe RACHEL (a self-admitted liar), or believe in actual facts.
