Over 2 million Obamacare enrollments threatened by data errors
Data discrepancies within the Federal Healthcare marketplace could affect insurance coverage for 2 million people.
According to a government document released, about 1 in 4 people who signed up for health insurance under president Obama’s law have data discrepancies.
Topping the list are citizenship and immigration issues along with income status.
The government is working to reach those individuals who they have identified with discrepancies.
Administration officials have expressed confidence that most of the discrepancies will be resolved over the summer.
An official with health and human services say “no one is at risk for losing coverage if they’re eligible to enroll.”
They also say that inconsistencies on an application does not mean there is a problem on their enrollment.
The healthcare exchanges offer subsidized private healthcare coverage to lower income and middle class people who can’t get insurance through their jobs.
Under the law, only citizens and legal immigrants are entitled to coverage.
