Consumers across California will be getting rebate checks from their health insurers next week – one of the first tangible results of the federal health care overhaul.

About 1.8 million Californians will be getting money back, either directly or through a reduction in their monthly premium. The average California rebate: about $65 a family.

Nationally, about $1.1 billion in health care premium rebates – averaging $151 per family – will go out to 12.7 million consumers by Aug. 1.
