Consumers Union, Policy & Action from Consumer Reports

 

As the deadline nears for health insurance companies to return nearly $1.4 billion to us for wasting our money, the lobbyists have moved in to stop it. 

Two bills have surfaced in Congress to undermine our rebates, putting most of the money we deserve right back into insurance company pockets! I just took action at Consumers Union’s website to fight the lobbyists, and hope you will join me.

One of the most pro-consumer rules in the national health reform law is aimed squarely at how insurance companies spend our money. If an insurance company spends more than 20 percent of our premium dollars on their paperwork, marketing and CEO salaries, we get a rebate, or lower rates.

The deadline for the first round of rebate checks is August 1. And it’s estimated insurers owe 9 million Americans nearly $1.4 billion! But these bills in Congress would undermine that. Please add your voice now to help us fight these bills. Thank you!
