Checks not guaranteed for all insurance rebates
San Francisco Chronicle

The check may not be in the mail. The Obama administration said in a report Thursday that 12.8 million people will benefit from health insurance rebates averaging $151 per household. But the number of families actually getting a check will be much smaller, experts say. The rebate report is the latest in a stream of positive news from the administration about President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, ahead of a Supreme Court decision on the signature legislation that aims to cover most of the uninsured and requires nearly every U.S. resident to have coverage.
