[Ed. – Probably. We still don’t even know how many enrollees there actually are.]
More than 2 million people who signed up for health insurance under Barack Obama’s law have data discrepancies that could jeopardize coverage for some, a government document shows.
About 1 in 4 of those who signed up have discrepancies, which could expose them to repayment demands or even loss of coverage if they received too generous a subsidy. …
A seven-page slide presentation from the Health and Human Services department was provided to Associated Press as several congressional committees investigated the discrepancies.
[M]ost of the issues revolve around details about income, citizenship and immigration status. …
Responding to the document, administration officials expressed confidence that most of the discrepancies can be resolved over the summer.
Nonetheless, HHS has set up a system to ‘turn off’ benefits for anyone who is found to be ineligible. [Boy, is that an accident waiting to happen. – Ed.]
Julie Bataille, communications coordinator for the health care roll out, said most of the discrepancies appear to be due to outdated information in government files. [Eh? People enrolled on or after 1 October 2013. What kind of “outdated information” are we talking about? Why should anything that changed since 1 October affect your health insurance coverage under Obamacare?]
The document provided to AP suggested that 2.1 million people enrolled through the new health insurance exchanges were ‘affected by one or more inconsistency’ as of the end of April.
