310,000 healthcare consumers could lose coverage come September if they don’t prove eligibility

Over 300,000 individuals who enrolled in a healthcare plan through the Affordable Care Act could lose their coverage come the end of September if they fail to provide the proper documentation demonstrating legal residency, according to the Obama administration.

The issue at hand is not necessarily an immigration status problem, but a data-matching issue. The cases refer to individuals who have inconsistencies in the information they provided when they initially enrolled in a healthcare plan.
