Citizenship Status Verification Questions Arose for 1 Million Obamacare Enrollees
An investigative report by the Washington Post reveals that nearly 1 million individuals who enrolled or attempted to enroll in Obamacare "ran into questions about their citizenship status."
As the Post explains, "Flaws in HealthCare.gov blocked many naturalized citizens or permanent legal residents, requiring them to submit immigration documents that are, like the income information, caught in a backlog."
The Obama administration has come under fire for failing to have its back-end income and residency document verification systems up and running. The Post reports that as many as one million current Obamacare customers may be receiving improper taxpayer-funded subsidies because the administration has yet to build a way to verify income documents, such as pay stubs and other information.
