BCBS policy holders could receive rebate checks

(WMC-TV) – Thousands of people in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas, are expected to get an insurance rebate check from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

About 73,000 rebate checks in the state of Tennessee are set to be mailed by August for people who have insurance through BCBS.

If you get your insurance through your employer, you will not receive a check. The rebates will go to people who bought their plan individually.

Why are they getting rebates? Some spending figures were not met with individual policy holders, so according to certain rules and provisions that were written into the Affordable Health Care Act, BCBS must refund a portion of the premiums.

But a Supreme Court ruling expected to come down this month could change the health law and the fate of the rebate checks.
