Health insurers to receive a fraction of what they’re owed under ACA program
Washington Post

Health insurers in the marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act will be reimbursed this year only 13 percent of the money they are owed under a program designed to help cushion the burden of covering large numbers of people who need expensive medical treatment.

Federal health officials said Thursday that insurers owed money through the three-year program are entitled to nearly $2.9 billion for coverage they provided in 2014. The government will pay them $362 million.
