Income Verification Issues Continue

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) report that was released last week stating that GAO undercover agents were able to obtain health insurance and premium subsidies through Healthcare.gov using fictitious identities. Had a functional subsidy verification entity been in place, this would not have happened. The House Ways and Means Committee reviewed the GAO report during a hearing last week. In the letter, the Senators ask Secretary Burwell what her plan is to ensure that the exchanges run a fully functioning income verification system in the future.
