Resolving Citizenship and Immigration Status Data-Matching Problems
Last week, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services mailed final notices to approximately 310,000 people who were able to enroll in health insurance coverage through the Federally Facilitated Marketplace but whose immigration status or citizenship could not be immediately verified. The notices tell people with data-matching problems (also called “inconsistencies”) that if they don’t upload or mail in copies of their documentation by Sept. 5, they risk losing their insurance coverage on Sept. 30. The notices are in English or Spanish only. Some states that run their own marketplaces are imposing these same deadlines.
Please spread the word through your networks about the approaching deadlines!
Anyone who receives a notice should submit copies of their documents again—even if they’ve already uploaded or mailed in documentation—to avoid losing their coverage. Marketplace customers may also call the Marketplace call center at 1-800-318-2596 to check to see if they need to submit documents.
Deadline to submit documents: Sept. 5, 2014
Potential coverage cutoff: Sept. 30, 2014
Call center: 1-800-318-2596
