It’s no shock that the insurance companies hate the new health reform law that requires they spend most of your premium on your health care – not on their reams of paperwork, marketing, TV ads and CEO bonuses.
But what is shocking is what’s going on behind the scenes right now that could put the money you deserve back in the insurance companies’ pockets!
In the coming days a group of state insurance
Take action by going to Consumers Union’s website.
What’s at stake is one of the most pro-consumer rules in the new health care law. This rule requires insurance companies spend no more than 20 percent of your premium on their administrative costs and profits. This finally holds companies accountable for how they spend your money – and helps hold down spiraling rates as well.
Even better, if insurance companies don’t keep their costs down, they have to give YOU a rebate for how much they went over that 20 percent. It’s estimated consumers could get at least $2 billion in rebates next year!
Tell your state Insurance Commissioner to stand up for you, and not the insurance companies by going to Consumers Union’s website.
