"[Federally-facilitated Exchanges (FFEs) and State-based Exchanges (SBEs)] use the operational process of electronic data matching with SSA and [the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)] to carry out the verification of citizenship, status as a national, or lawful presence.... If the information provided about an applicant 's residency is not reasonably compatible with other information provided by the applicant, the Exchange must examine electronic data sources available to the Exchange ... The FFEs and SBEs currently do not have access to a data source with information that could be used to verify an applicant's attestation regarding family size ... and are therefore accepting applicant attestations at this time .... FFE s and SBEs use the operational process of electronic data matching with IRS, SSA, and current sources of income to verify annual household income .... FFEs and SBEs use the operational process of electronic data matching with current income sources including, for the FFEs and some SBEs, data matching with Equifax Workforce Solutions. For SBEs, another common data source used to verify current income is state wage data from the State Wage Information Collection Agency (SWICA).... The Exchange accepts the applicant's attestation regarding the employer-sponsored coverage verification unless the applicant's attestation is not reasonably compatible with the foregoing verification information obtained by the Exchange, other information provided by the applicant, or other information in the records of the Exchange."
