Cigna must refund $2.3 million to Vermont customers

first_imgCIGNA Healthcare,by Alan Panebaker vtdigger.org Cigna, a major health insurer of large businesses in Vermont, is on the hook for more than $2 million that it must return to its customers in the state under a provision of the federal health care law.According to numbers released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 4,636 Vermonters will receive a rebate ‘averaging out to $506.04 a person (or $807 per family).The rebate is required under a section of the federal Affordable Care Act which requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 percent (or 85 percent in the large group market which is generally insurance through large employers) on medical care.If insurance companies do not meet this requirement, they have to refund the portion of the premium that exceeded the 20 or 15 percent limit on things like administrative expenses.Companies insuring Vermonters in the small group and individual markets met the requirement and did not have to refund any money to their customers.Cigna was the only insurance company that had to refund money to Vermonters. It covers the â large group’market of employers who employ 51 or more people. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Vermont had the highest average per-person rebate for that market.Steve Kimbell, commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation, said he was surprised to learn insurers in Vermont did not meet the requirement.BISHCA Commissioner Steve Kimbell. VTD file photo/Josh Larkinâ As far as I knew, all our major carriers were under [the threshold],’Kimbell said.The state regulators may not have been aware of the issue because it occurred in the large group market. Kimbell said the state regulates the individual and small group insurance markets more closely than the large groups because it requires â community rating’for those markets ‘requiring insurance companies to charge the same premiums for people regardless of how healthy or old they are.The larger groups use â experience rating’where insurance companies can charge a different rate for different people based on differences in their demographics, past health care utilization, medical status and other factors.Kimbell said the department was looking into what businesses this will affect.Nationwide, insurance companies in the large group market are required to return $386 million in rebates, which will go to employers who will in turn return the money to their employees.Anya Rader Wallack, chair of the Green Mountain Care Board, which oversees health care reform in the state, said the failure to meet the federally set ratio could be a result of people seeking less medical care.At the beginning of the year, insurance companies predict how much they will spend on medical care, so a decrease in utilization of health care, which the state has been seeing, could shift that balance to mean a higher percentage went to things other than medical care.â Itâ s a result of a carrier spending less than predicted on actual payments to providers,’Rader Wallack said. â To call it excess administrative expenses I guess is one way of looking at it. The way I look at it is predictions of actual health care expense were much lower than anticipated.âA spokeswoman for Cigna verified the amount owed to Vermonters was a little over $2.3 million. She said Thursday afternoon she was unsure why Cigna had failed to meet the federal requirement.The company must pay the rebate by August 1. Kimbell said it will affect 27 companies in Vermont. As of Thursday afternoon, the Department of Financial Regulation was looking into who those were. In a joint statement, Vermont’s congressional delegation, Senators Leahy andSanders and Representative Welch said, â Insurance premiums should go toward providing care to people who get sick. Thatâ s simply common sense.âNationwide, 12.8 million Americans will benefit from $1.1 billion in rebates under the 80/20 standard.  The medical loss ratio or 80/20 rule is a part of the controversial federal health care law which the US Supreme Court could strike down altogether next week.The court issued opinions Thursday morning, but the ruling on the Affordable Care Act was not one of them. Observers expect a decision by next Thursday.Twenty-six states challenged the constitutionality of the national health care law, arguing the law infringed upon states’rights and individual liberties. They contended the federal government could not compel citizens to purchase health insurance under what is called the â individual mandate.â  June 21, 2012 vtdigger.orglast_img read more

Manchester City’s plan to sign Juventus defender Bonucci

first_img Miki Soria Now, with it impossible to sign Laporte, ‘Option Bonucci’ has been activated by City. After a first bid of around 46 million euros was rejected by the Italian side, Guardiola has spoken with the player to explain his interest in having him on board this coming season.  CEST With Stones, the transfer is following the expected direction. City have an agreement with the player and the English defender has asked Everton to let him leave if a suitable offer arrives, which should happen sooner or later. Laporte’s renewal with Athletic, though, ruined City’s plans. Plan A was over and they had to look for an alternative. That’s where Leonardo Bonucci’s name comes into play.  08/07/2016 Pep Guardiola had a plan when he arrived at Manchester City. His team needed two centre-backs and the first two names quickly became clear: John Stones and Aymeric Laporte. The profiles of the two players were obvious: young with top level experience, good on the ball, reliable… a series of conditions which made them more than adequate for a team playing in Guardiola’s style.  The Juventus defender has developed into one of Europe’s best central defenders in recent years and he demonstrated that point during Euro 2016. Not just because of his reliability in defence, but also because of his movement of the ball, as witnessed in Italy’s first goal against Belgium, when he set up Giaccherini with a pass from over 40 yards. Guardiola’s followed him with interest in recent months and praised him publicly after Bayern beat Juve in the Champions League.  Upd. at 19:25 In this sense, City hope that Bonucci will ask Juventus to facilitate his exit from the club for an amount which benefits both parties. If the first offer was 46 million euros, a second of between 50 million and 60 million euros could prove definitive. Juve need the money, Bonucci is 29 and he’s easier to replace than Paul Pogba or Paulo Dybala. In fact, the arrival of Medhi Benatia, who has been linked with the Turin club, would serve to fill the gap.last_img read more

Georgia Coach Mark Fox Yelled At His Student Section For Chanting “Bruce Pearl Sucks”

first_imgGeorgia vs. Auburn basketball in 2015.Georgia’s men’s basketball coach Mark Fox got pretty upset with the Bulldogs’ student section Saturday afternoon. His team is facing Auburn in Athens, Ga. During the second half of the contest, Georgia’s students began chanting at Tigers’ coach Bruce Pearl. This did not please Fox, who proceeded to yell at the Georgia student section, asking them to stop. Georgia students were chanting something about Bruce Pearl, couldn’t hear what. Whatever it was, Mark Fox asked them to stop.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) February 14, 2015It appears the Bulldogs’ students were chanting “Bruce Pearl Sucks!”Part of student section starts chanting “Bruce Pearl sucks” during Auburn free throw. Mark Fox walks over & yells at them to stop. #class— Wilson Alexander (@Alexander_taGr8) February 14, 2015That’s a pretty classy move from Fox. Student sections can be fairly mean-spirited. Georgia and Auburn are currently playing on FSN.last_img read more

Sea Sickness-98473626256— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015Earlier: Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott is having himself a full weekend. He and Braxton Miller coached at an all-star camp in South Carolina, he caught a small shark during a fishing trip, and he took some time out of his day to troll Michigan fans on Twitter.Looks about right pic.twitter.com/BswrgQ9p84— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015Of course, he got some responses from Wolverine fans, but he dealt with those pretty effectively as well.It have a national championship ring and two pair of gold pants ? https://t.co/3mG9P2Nsf9— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015So, by my count, Elliott is up 3-0 on sharks (he has since tweeted about a few more catches during his fishing trip), 2-0 against Michigan on the field, and at least 1-0 against fans on Twitter? There are far too many scores to keep up with here.last_img read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Clemson picked up a massive win, knocking off Notre Dame at home on Saturday night, so you know head coach Dabo Swinney was ready to dance. After the game, and a very awkward post-game interview that was accidentally cut off by ESPN, Swinney got down in the locker room, swinging a towel and hitting the Whip. We cannot confirm whether or not he added in the Nae Nae as well.With the win, Clemson danced its way to sixth in both the AP and Coaches Polls this week. The Tigers look to be in very good position to make a run at an ACC Championship, with Florida State struggling in recent weeks.last_img read more
