Health insurers will rebate more than $1B to customers this year under a provision of the U.S. health-care overhaul that forces them to offer refunds on the premium dollars they don't spend. They have until June to finalize exactly how much the rebates will be, and are expected to go out by August. Critics say the provision does nothing to address the actual drivers of high health-care costs - particularly the cost of care.
