Maximizing Returns: Positioning for a Larger Rebate under PPACA
An employer sponsoring an insured group health plan may receive a rebate from its carrier under the new minimum loss ratio (MLR) rules included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, or health reform).

Advance planning can maximize the rebate, while simultaneously protecting the employer from compliance missteps.
