    Investigators obtain ObamaCare coverage, subsidies using fake identities[W:17:50]

    Here's another aspect of Obamacare that democrats should be proud of... This thing just needs to be scrapped.


    Investigators obtain ObamaCare coverage, subsidies using fake identities
    Published July 23, 2014FoxNews.com

    Undercover government investigators were able to obtain thousands of dollars in taxpayer subsidies under ObamaCare using fake identities, according to findings presented to Congress on Wednesday.

    The probe by the Government Accountability Office has raised fresh concerns about the ability of the sprawling health care program to prevent or intercept costly fraud schemes. In the case of the GAO investigation, 11 out of 12 applications submitted using "fictitious identities" were accepted, resulting in subsidized health coverage.

    "For each of our 11 approved applications, we paid the required premiums to put policies into force, and are continuing to pay the premiums. For the 11 applications that were approved for coverage, we obtained the advance premium tax credit in all cases," the report said.



    According to the GAO, the total amount for these credits was $2,500 monthly, adding up to $30,000 a year.

    I want to see if the GAO will find out if illegal immigrants have gotten coverage. This investigation shows that at the very minimum, it is plausible that it can happen, we just need to find out if it HAS happened.

    I believe they have, and that I'm paying for it (as are all other actual federal tax payers).
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    That is exactly the way this kind of administrative flaw will be exploited.

    I can see it now... If someone attempts to prevent this kind of fraud, they will be deemed "racist" just like with voter IDs.

    Buying beer with your own money is the same as getting federal tax dollars through federal fraud, that I and many of us have worked very hard to earn, to buy insurance through the federal government? I hope I misunderstood your point.

    I'm sure the system will be bankrupted by schmucks who, in addition to buying health care for themselves, go to the added expense of buying insurance for a non-existent person.

    This is kind of hilarious....

    Subsidies are paid to the insurer, not the insured.

    http://healthinsurance.about.com/od/...bsidy-Work.htm

    "How Do I Get the Money?

    If you choose to get the premium tax credit in advance, the government sends the money directly to your health insurance company on your behalf. You'll never actually lay your hands on the money. Your health insurer credits that money toward your cost of health insurance premiums, decreasing how much you'll pay each month.

    If you choose to get the premium tax credit as a tax refund, the money will be included in your refund when you file your taxes. This could mean a big tax refund. But, you'll pay more for health insurance each month since you’ll be paying both your share of the premium and the share that would be have been covered by the subsidy if you'd chosen the advanced payment option. It will come out even in the end, but if you're low on cash-in-hand, you might find the advance payment option more user-friendly."
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
