Worse Than They Thought: House Confirms HALF Of All Obamacare Applications Flawed
Daily Caller ^ | 04 June 2014 | Sarah Hurtubise

At least 4 million Obamacare sign-ups have flawed applications out of the 8 million total applications, according to a report released Wednesday by House Republicans.

The Energy and Commerce Committee documents double the claims made in an Associated Press report released earlier on Wednesday, which found that according to a May 8 federal slideshow, 2.1 million Obamacare applications had “inconsistencies” in income, immigration and citizenship data.

Federal Obamacare contractor Serco compiled a chart for the committee which displays over 4 million application discrepancies by May 27. The inconsistencies include income, citizenship and immigration, residency, incarceration, Indian status, Social Security number, and eligibility for another federal health program.

Well, there’s no way you can believe any of these numbers coming out of this WH. I wonder what percentage was illegal aliens grifting the system?

The illegal aliens aren’t signing up for Obamacare because they can get “free” medical care by showing up at any hospital emergency room.

The US taxpayer was probably billed for all staff who worked on submitting fake applications to get the numbers up. Everything about this admin is a lie.

And the US taxpayer will be billed for the introduction of a new class of “correctors” who will serve the same function as the “navigators” except they will go to those who incorrectly or fraudulently filled out their initial apps and get them to lie more convincingly according to pre-fabbed models so their applications can be approved.

Serco.

Is that not the contractor with the hundreds of phone-center employees who are charged with pushing the refresh button every 3 minutes to show activity? And are charged with resolving 4 cases each per month?

I'd be surprised if they weren't all "flawed."

They just slopped the thing together.

No problem. Those people deserve at least double coverage. /s

There go those heartless misogynistic children-hating extreme right tea baggers again!

They refuse to accept what Hussein claims : signing up for Medicaid cannot ever, under any circumstances, create a "flawed" application.

Why is that so hard to understand?

Not anatomically possible since they haven't got any.

While over 1.6 million annual and current income inconsistencies were identified, according to the documents, none had been resolved by May 27.

Because the Obama administration failed to create an income verification system in 2013 before it launched HealthCare.gov, it opted to approve Obamacare applications without any verification, based on the customers’ self-attestation of income, and is now checking application data by hand, now that customers are actively using their coverage.

Are ObamaCare's Tax Credits Harmless? The Little Understood Dark Side Of The Subsidies

By accepting a tax credit, low-income or lower-middle class families face significant tax ramifications and potential financial risk. Congress has changed the rules twice on consumers for the credits, making the income cliffs steeper, and fully equipping the IRS to claw back overpaid subsidies (unlike the individual mandate penalty).

The flip side of the tax credits is almost unknown to the general public.

Were the application forms questions done in cursive writing?

MOST of the people filling these forms out probably don’t know how to READ and WRITE!!! Obama and the Democrats blew up our health care system for these people!

There is no way to verify FUTURE income ... and that is what the Obamacare application asks people to do.

So how can you ‘verify’ income that hasn’t happened yet?

Probably the same way you are supposed to "insure" for preexisting conditions.

That needs to end.

The problem is that IF additional income or status changes do happen and your subsidy should have been less, they’re sending you a bill ... in some cases, your change in income/status may totally disqualify you for a subsidy which means the bill could be for thousands. The IRS can use ALL of their techniques to collect this money. It’s going to be horrible for those that get these bills for hundreds or thousands of dollars.

As for your question “So how can you ‘verify’ income that hasn’t happened yet?” .... just like most of Obamacare, it doesn’t make sense. The government doesn’t care what the consequences are either, so folks will be left to deal with the IRS ... or no insurance, or no doctors, or no hospitals, or denial of treatment .... all the usual outcomes of big government interference in what should be private business/health issues.
