Data discrepancies in health sign-ups [may impact coverage for 1 in 4 enrollees]

From the AP:

More than 2 million people who got health insurance under President Barack Obama’s law have data discrepancies that could jeopardize coverage for some, a government document shows.

About 1 in 4 people who signed up have discrepancies, creating a huge paperwork jam for the feds and exposing some consumers to repayment demands, or possibly even loss of coverage, if they got too generous a subsidy.

The 7-page slide presentation from the Health and Human Services department was provided to The Associated Press as several congressional committees are actively investigating the discrepancies, most of which involve important details on income, citizenship and immigration status.
Sounds about par for the course for these clowns.

(And if anybody who reads this is somebody impacted by yet another government foul-up, I do feel badly for you)

Today my husband took our 19 year- old granddaughter to sign up for healthcare available to her because of The Affordable Care Act. She has an emotional disability that manifests as selective mutism. Because she will have healthcare, she will be able to get therapy for her condition and a diagnosis that will make her eligible for employment services through the State Dept. of Rehabilitation - services that are primarily funded by the Federal Government.

Our granddaughter has come to live with us because she has four younger siblings at home, and we are are more able than anyone else in the family to get her help, but we would not be able to get her the help that she needs to become an independent, contributing member of society without The Affordable Care Act and the services provided by the State Department of Rehabilitation. We could not be more grateful to our government.
