"Even if you don't get a rebate, there's a good chance that these reforms are helping you as well because one easy way to meet the goal of spending 80 percent of every dollar on care is to charge less for your care," Obama said today.
"Because of this new rule, because of the fact that it improves the value of the coverage that you purchase, last year alone Americans saved $3.4 billion in lower premiums," he said.
Obama's public relations blitz on the rebates underscores one of the persistent challenges of selling the health care law three years after he signed it.
Many Americans still don't understand the financial benefits, despite the administration's appeals that they are numerous and tangible.
A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation in April, before the White House's summer campaign on Obamacare, found that 49 percent of Americans say they don't have enough information to understand how the law will affect them and their families.
