The Federal Government Just Audited Obamacare. What It Found Is APPALLING

MIAMI, FL - DECEMBER 22: Angel Rivera looks at his health care options available with an insurance agent from Sunshine Life and Health Advisors as he tries to sign up for a health insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act at the kiosk setup at the Mall of Americas on December 22, 2013 in Miami, Florida. Tomorrow is the deadline for people to sign up if they want their new health benefits to kick in on the 1st of January. People have until March 31, to sign up for coverage that would start later.

Obamacare gave $21.8 million in tax credits to individuals who were not eligible for them, per Free Beacon.

An audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that 11,388 individuals who received credits did not meet the necessary eligibility requirements.

Check it out:

To be eligible to receive the premium tax credit, an individual must be a citizen or be lawfully present, be a resident of the state where the exchange was located, and not be incarcerated.

In some cases, individuals who were not eligible for benefits were able to continue receiving tax credits due to Obamacare’s “good faith” provision. Management at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said that if an individual attempts to support his eligibility by submitting any documentation, regardless of its relevance, it was considered a good faith effort and that person could still receive benefits.

As of now, these individuals continue to receive the tax credits they were not eligible for, as those credits were not terminated in 2014 when they should have been.

The audit goes on:

“We do not believe it is appropriate for the exchanges to allow individuals for whom they know one or more of the eligibility requirements were determined to have not been met to continue to maintain insurance coverage and receive the advance premium tax credit for a full calendar year.”

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has said moving forward, they’ll be more devoted to ensuring taxpayers are protected—nevertheless, here’s just one more example of the colossal mess that is Obamacare. Say it with me, Republicans: repeal. And. Replace.

  1. Sarah: The ’10 ’12 election cycles we elected Rs who PROMISED “REPEAL”!
    Beginning in ’14 and into ’16 the wording of said promise changed to
    “REPEAL AND REPLACE”!
    ‘REPLACE’ was added by politicians AFTER they were elected.
    THEY LIED TO US YET AGAIN

    • they passed the bill to repeal it several times Obama vetoed them they did not lie, and since obamacare has done so much damage to the insurance industry they can o longer just repeal it they now have to replace it to reverse the damage and make it affordable.

  2. Repeal, and allow the Free Market with NO requirement to carry, with some restrictions (i.e. cover pre-existiing conditions, limits on deductibles, allow co-pays, limits on cost of coverages), but DO NOT REPLACE WITH ANOTHER GOVERNMENT PROGRAM OR require tax forms to be filled out

    • Without the mandates and with limits on deductibles, co-pays, and cost of coverage, what is the source of money for the pre-existing conditions? It’s a lovely idea, but that 50-ton pebble is the main thing they’re stubbing their toes on.

  3. ACA needs to be repealed first. Place an expiration date one year after the repeal. Then work on correcting the problems that the original insurance system created. There is NOTHING wrong with our health care system, the problems come with insurance policies.
