The federal marketplace for getting insurance under the Affordable Care Act lacked adequate controls for verifying citizenship status, income and family size to determine eligibility and subsidies, according to a new report.

HHS’ Office of Inspector General reviewed 90 applicants from the 2013 and 2014 enrollment periods. The report notes that the problems identified don’t necessarily indicate that anyone was improperly enrolled or received subsidies they weren’t eligible to receive.
