Estimates indicate that in 2012, as many as 9 million people could be eligible for the first round of rebates totaling $1.4 billion, and rebates in the individual market could average $164 per person. Rebates are to be paid by August 1 of each year in the form of reductions in premiums, rebate checks, or lump-sum reimbursements to the credit or debit card accounts used to pay the premiums. Each consumer owed a rebate will receive an amount that is proportional to the premium amount paid; therefore, in instances where an employer pays a portion (or all) of the premium, the employer would receive a portion (or all) of the rebate.
