More changes in rolling out health benefit exchanges
Sacramento Business Journal

The Obama administration has quietly rolled back requirements for state health benefit exchanges to verify the incomes and health insurance status of consumers during the first year of operations. Under the Affordable Care Act, low-income individuals who do not have access to health insurance through an employer are eligible for subsidized coverage. Proposed rules would have required exchanges to verify the income status of applicants and do random checks to determine their access to employer-based coverage.
