Thousands May Have Been Shorted on Insurance Subsidies
Kaiser Health NewsLink to more items from this source
Apr. 24, 2015

"Thousands of families with a disabled or deceased parent may have received a lower subsidy than they deserved to buy health coverage through the federal insurance marketplace as a result of a calculation error by the federal government.... Healthcare.gov seemed to be tripping up in cases where children were receiving Social Security income, generally because a parent has died or is disabled.... By adding the child's Social Security income to the family's income, the marketplace was inflating the family's income. The result: Some people were wrongly turned down for Medicaid coverage and others received less in premium tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies than they were eligible for."
