Enrollment in California's healthcare program for the poor has soared as the state implements President Obama's federal overhaul, pleasing advocates who have sought expanded coverage but also presenting new costs for the state -- a total of $1.2 billion more than originally thought.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)-- Less than one percent, or 330,000, of the 2.9 million cases which had data discrepancies when signing up for Obamacare have been fixed, potentially jeopardizing health care for millions who signed up under the Affordable Care Act, the government's health care fraud watchdog said.
The Health and Human Services inspector general said the administration was not able to resolve 2.6 million so-called "inconsistencies" out of a total of 2.9 million such problems in the federal insurance exchange from October through December 2013.
Of the roughly 330,000 cases that could be straightened out, the administration had only actually resolved about 10,000 during the period of the inspector general's audit. That worked out to less than 1 percent of the total. -- Source
