Get ready for another Fall Classic of confusion and anger:
Individuals who signed up on HealthCare.gov for insurance and subsidies to lower their coverage costs were asked on their applications to estimate 2014 income and citizenship information. That information was checked against their 2012 tax return. In some cases, the data didn’t match.
The Obama administration has told more than 300,000 individuals who obtained coverage through the federal health exchange that they may lose some or all of their subsidies if they don’t provide additional income information by Tuesday.
Another 115,000 people may lose coverage under the ACA on Tuesday because they didn’t provide requested documents verifying their citizenship or immigration status by a Sept. 5 federal deadline.
If you like the plan we told you that you must buy, you can keep it.
