About 100,000 households received erroneous tax forms from California’s Obamacare exchange. Covered California admitted that their customer data didn’t match what health insurance companies had on file.
The latest botched episode in what Americans have come to expect from the Affordable Care Act, involves the issuance of Form 1095-A. The ACA mandates that all statewide exchanges send the forms to all federal subside recipients.
Covered California spokesman Amy Palmer said that the agency plans on sending corrected forms to customers later this month. They will also be notified of the errors by email. Overall 12.5% of the 800,000 statewide subsidized customers will need revised forms to file their 2014 tax returns.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Covered California is enjoying strong consumer support for the February 15 deadline for open enrollment under Obamacare. At this point the California exchange is 400,000 behind its goal of 1.7 million sign-ups for open enrollment in 2015.
