The Obamacare enrollment flap is far from over.
More than 2 million Americans who signed up for insurance through HealthCare.gov could be at risk of losing their coverage or be forced to repay part of all of their premium subsidy because of discrepancies with their applications, according to a government document obtained by the Associated Press and confirmed to ABC News by an administration official.
That’s roughly one in four applicants overall.
In many cases consumers provided identity and income information that conflicts with what the government has on record, the Department of Health and Human Services said today.
The result: some Americans may have received greater subsidies than merited or were allowed to purchase plans for which they were ineligible. HHS says it’s now “double- and triple-checking” with applicants to verify their information.
