RICHMOND, Virginia (AP) — Nearly $9 million in refunds from insurance companies are headed to 104,000 consumers in Virginia.

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced the refunds Thursday, crediting the Affordable Care Act.

Burwell said the refunds in Virginia will average $148 per family.

Virginians entitled to a refund will get the money through a check in the mail or in a reduction in future premiums, among other ways
