Uncle8888 has received one-time rebate to offset his premium payable for 2017 renewal due to ElderShield claims have been lower than projected in last 5 years of the scheme. Uncle8888 and his spouse actually don't need ElderShield; but they didn't opt out since Eldershield is social insurance pool. Just treat as charity contributions to pool and hopefully help to make it sustainable.
