    Obamacare At Risk For 310,000 Who Must Provide Proof Of Citizenship, Immigration Stat

    Obamacare At Risk For 310,000 Who Must Provide Proof Of Citizenship, Immigration Status

    Posted: 08/12/2014 2:41 pm EDT Updated: 2 hours ago

    President Barack Obama's administration is contacting 310,000 Obamacare enrollees starting Tuesday to warn them that they must verify they are U.S. citizens or legal residents -- or their benefits will be cut off.

    In letters being delivered in English and Spanish, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services instructs the enrollees to provide additional documentation regarding their citizenship or immigration status by Sept. 5. Without that documentation, their health insurance plans will be rescinded Sept. 30. The recipients of these letters are people who have not responded to five to seven previous attempts to obtain their documents, according to a press release from the agency.


    "We want as many consumers as possible to remain enrolled in marketplace coverage, so we are giving these individuals a last chance to submit their documents before their coverage through the marketplace will end," Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in the press release.

    Discrepancies in an individual's application does not necessarily mean that person is ineligible for coverage, the press release notes.


    The 310,000 people being contacted represent only a small fraction of the more than 8 million individuals who have enrolled in private coverage via the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges.

    Nonetheless, this effort by the administration underscores the challenges left from Obamacare's troubled first open enrollment period, which began last October for benefits that took effect this year.

    Since the sign-ups in that six-month period ended, the Department of Health and Human Services has been working to reconcile problems with more than 2 million enrollees, including questions about the income they reported to qualify for subsidies and about their immigration status or citizenship.

    Undocumented immigrants are barred
    from receiving subsidies under the Affordable Care Act or even using their own money to purchase health insurance on the exchanges.

    Immigrants who are legal residents or have become naturalized citizens can do both.


    Initially, there were questions related to the citizenship or legal residency of some 970,000 individuals who applied for Obamacare subsidies, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. To date, the issues with 450,000 applicants have been resolved and another 210,000 are in process, the agency reported.

    These issues are specific to applications made through the federally run exchanges in 36 states, not the exchanges operated by the states themselves.


    The largest number of letters are going to Florida, where 93,800 people haven't replied to prior requests by mail, phone or email, according to the agency. The next two states on the list are Texas, with 52,700 people affected, and Georgia, with 20,900.


    Even after the letters are sent, federal authorities will try to make contact with these enrollees three more times before their benefits are canceled, an HHS official said on condition of anonymity. To help people document their eligibility for benefits, the federal government also is enlisting the aid of community-based organizations that provided application assistance during the enrollment period, Tavenner said in the press release.

    Act by September 5, 2014 or Your Marketplace Health Insurance May End


    We have contacted you several times about an issue with your Marketplace application, because some data you gave us doesnít match our records.

    We want to help you resolve these issues so that you can
    stay covered in the Marketplace. On your application, you told us that a person (or persons) included onthe application is a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or has eligible immigration status. We asked you to senddocuments to prove that the following individual(s) is a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or has eligibleimmigration status:[FNLNS of each individual who has a Citizenship or Immigration inconsistency)We know that most people with these data matching issues want to keep their Marketplace healthinsurance and are working hard to submit their documents.

    You are getting this notice because we
    havenít received any
    response from you or any copies of the documents we requested.

    If you think
    that is wrong and youíve tried to submit
    documents before , itís still important for you to act immediately so that we can help you stay covered in the Marketplace.

    Doní
    t lose your Marketplace health coverage

    Because we still donít have
    the documents we need to verify information on your application, the individual(s) named above is at risk of losing Marketplace health insurance, along with any premium tax credits and help with cost-sharing. Upload the needed document(s) to your account at HealthCare.gov or send it to the Marketplace no later than September 5, 2014.

    Unless you submit the required documents
    now , youíll
    get an official notice in September letting you know the date that Marketplace coverage willend for those listed above. After that date, they
    wonít have Marketplace health insurance.

    What should I do next?


    1.
    Look at the attached list of documents and make a copy of any you have. It's possible that you need to provide more than one document.

    2. There are two ways to send documents to the Marketplace:

    2 a. The fastest option is to upload documents online.

    Log in to your Marketplace account on
    HealthCare.gov
    by clicking on ďLog inĒ at the top of the page. Once youíre logged in,
    select your current application and then use the menu on the left side of your screen to click on Application Details. On the next screen, youíll see a list of any data matching issues (called ďinconsistencies"on the screen) in your application. Follow the steps foreach inconsistency (data matching issue) to upload the documents needed to fix the issue.If your application has more than one inconsistency or more than one person hasinconsistencies, work through the steps to upload documents for each one.
    Note: Please
    donít use the following characters in the name of the file that you upload: / \ : * ? ď < > |.

    OR
    b. Mail a copy
    of the documents to the address below as proof that the individual(s) listed above is either a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or has an eligible immigration status. You should keep the original documents.

    IMPORTANT: Include the bar code page from the end of this letter together with your
    documents. This helps the Marketplace match your documents to the correct application.

    Where to send your documents

    Send a copy of the documents to:
    Health Insurance Marketplace
    Attn: Supporting Documentation
    465 Industrial Blvd.
    London, KY 40750

    If you have questions or need to find someone who can help you in person, we are here to help. Call the
    Marketplace Call Center at
    1-800-318-2596
    and tell them you got a data matching warning notice. TTYusers should call 1-855-889-4325. The call is free.

    Continuing coverage outside of the Marketplace


    If your Marketplace health insurance ends and you still want health coverage, contact your insurancecompany directly to see what options may be available. Keep in mind that if your Marketplace healthinsurance
    ends, you wonít get the benefits you may have been receiving from the Marketplace, such as premium tax credits or help with cost-sharing.

    If you receive an official notice ending your coverage, you can ask for an appeal

    If you receive another official notice stating the date that your Marketplace coverage will end and you think we made a mistake, you can appeal that decision about your eligibility for health coverage.Information about how to appeal will be included in the official notice of your coverage ending.

    Prove or lose? Why wasn't it prove before you received coverage? How many claims have already been paid for people who weren't eligible to start with? How many of the remainder are actually illegal and ineligible as well but just have better fake documents the government can't or won't disprove? Handing out subsidized health coverage to illegal aliens was a violation of the Obama Care law. How does Medicaid and Medicare Services intend to recover that money that's already been spent on insurance and claims for illegal aliens? How do the insurance companies on the exchanges verify who is legal and illegal? How do they recoup their wrongfully paid claims to people who signed up and paid their own premiums but weren't entitled to the coverage that paid their medical claims?

    Repeal Obama Care Now! Shut it down. Stop all this madness, end all this bizarre harm to our country, citizens and treasury and get these people out of here. There is no ordinance, rule or law they won't break. And the government knew that, after all, they started their crime wave the day they set foot in the United States. Now get them out of here.

    The illegals are not eligible and paying for them drives up the cost for people that are finding out they have given up healthcare that worked to pay for healthcare in name only.
