Insurers Will Share Revenue Under U.S. Health Market Rules
San Francisco Chronicle

Insurers with healthier, lower-cost patients would share revenue with rivals whose customers run up higher bills under U.S. rules to stabilize insurance markets within the 2010 health-care law.

Insurers such as UnitedHealth Group Inc. would also qualify for $20 billion in subsidies from 2014 to 2016 when they take on the sickest patients, according to the regulations. The money would come from fees levied on the insurance industry.
