We previously discussed that one in eight ObamaCare enrollees are receiving improper subsidies. When discrepancies with respect to citizenship or immigration are included, the proportion goes up to one in four.
The May 8 document provided to the AP said 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.
The number of people affected could well be higher. According to the administration, the 2 million figure reflects only consumers who signed up through the federally administered HealthCare.gov website and call centers. The government signed up about 5.4 million people, while state-run websites signed up an additional 2.6 million.
Updated numbers provided by Bataille indicate that the total number of people affected remains about the same as reflected in the document. About 1.2 million have discrepancies related to income; 505,000 have issues with immigration data and 461,000 have conflicts related to citizenship information. (AP)
