GAO: Investigators able to sign up fraudulent applicants for ACA coverage

NHCAA SmartBrief | Jul 23, 2014

A new report from the Government Accountability Office reveals that undercover investigators were able to sign up fraudulent identities for health insurance plans and federal subsidies through HealthCare.gov and by phone. Eleven of the fake applicants were approved for coverage subsidies, which amount to almost $2,500 monthly, despite providing invalid Social Security numbers and other fake documents. The findings of the report are still preliminary, according to GAO officials, who plan to disclose the current results to lawmakers today.
