Obama speech to herald reform law benefits
Modern Healthcare

President Barack Obama on Thursday will tout the benefits that Americans with existing health insurance will receive under his signature healthcare law, as his administration ramps up its promotional campaign to get people to sign up for coverage this fall. The White House speech will tout the $100 average rebates per family that 8.5 million privately insured Americans, or their employers, will receive from their insurers this summer under the reform law’s provision that insurers can’t pocket more than 15% to 20% of premiums for profit and administrative costs, according to a senior administration official.
