Hi. I'm playing hooky this morning, taking a few hours of down time. But there are a couple of stories in today's papers that I don't want you to miss.
Our friend Nina Bernstein writes about the rebates people are -- or are not -- getting if their insurer spent more than 80 or 85 percent of premium dollars on health care. If you get your insurance through an employer and you are due for a rebate, you got a letter in the mail, but the check went to your employer. Employers have some options -- pay you the rebate, apply the rebate to future premiums -- so if you're wondering where your rebate is, read this article before you start asking so you'll understand the way it's supposed to work.
One of our favorites, Dr. Pauline Chen, writes about bullying in medical school and efforts that are underway to change that.
That's all for now. Have a great day. I'm going to relax for a bit before heading to the office. Later. Jennifer
