ObamaCare’s Eligibility Verification System Open to Abuse
The Government Accountability Office set up a sting operation to test whether ObamaCare’s eligibility verification system is open to abuse.
GAO discovered a resounding Yes.
“Fake applicants were able to get subsidized insurance coverage in 11 of 18 attempts,” reports National Journal.
Investigators had the most success when using ObamaCare’s online and telephone enrollment systems. These improper enrollments resulted in subsidies totaling $30,000 annually.
The findings of the sting operation bode ill for the controversial health reform law. The failure to correctly match applicants to subsidies indicates that ObamaCare’s expensive digital architecture is failing in one of its most basic tasks.
