Friday Morning Updates

Updates on a couple of yesterday's items:

■ Unlike Aetna and UHC, Anthem will not be sending out rebate checks to Buckeye State insureds. Via email:

"On June 1, 2013, Anthem filed the required MLR report with Health and Human Services for the 2012 calendar year and met the required loss ratio for all lines of business for 2012. This means no notices will be sent and no rebates will be issued."

Good for them!

■ Hobby Lobby, much like Beckwith Electric, gets a reprieve on implementing the birth control convenience item mandate (Hat Tip: Hot Air):

"The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals moved to reverse a lower court's decision to deny Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.'s quest for an injunction against part of the Affordable Care Act that requires it to cover the cost of emergency contraceptives for some of its employees."

It's not a done deal, though: the case now goes back to the lower court for another round.

Still, some good news heading into the weekend.
