Insured Floridians Expecting $54M Back

Florida policyholders are expected to get about $54 million back from their health insurance companies over the summer, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Federal officials credit the refunds to the Affordable Care Act, which requires insurance companies to spend most of what they collect in premiums on patient care. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
