A requirement of the Affordable Care Act is that insurers pay rebates to customers if they fail to spend specific percentages of premium revenue on medical care and quality improvement programs. And in 2017, UnitedHealthcare ended up providing rebates to both large and small employers that were approximately 40 percent higher than the previous year, totaling some $146.2 million.
