|The Federal Medical Loss Ratio Rule: Implications for Consumers in Year Three|

Mar. 26, 2015
"[T]otal rebates for 2013 were $325 million, less than one-third the amount paid out in 2011, indicating much greater compliance with the MLR rule. Insurers' spending on quality improvement remained low, at less than 1 percent of premiums.
