In the past couple of weeks, I’ve received notices from health insurance carriers outlining their plans to distribute the 2013 medical loss ratio (MLR) rebates for insured policies. It’s probably been several months since you’ve thought about MLR rebates, so let’s do a quick refresh. The ACA regulates the amount of money that health insurers are required to spend on claims — at least 85% of the insured premiums they receive from large employers and 80% of premiums from small group or individual policies. Insurers that spent less than required have until August 1 to return the difference. At which point employers have three months to distribute the money.
