San Diego Union-Tribune

About 98,000 California families must verify their immigration status by Sept. 30 or lose their health coverage, the state’s insurance exchange announced Thursday.

In a statement, Covered California, which sold nearly 1.4 million policies in late 2013 and early 2014, said that nearly 100,000 families provided inconsistent documentation during the application process and “will need to submit documents showing they are lawfully present in the United States as U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals or individuals with eligible immigration status.”
