GAO Investigators Obtain ACA Health Insurance Subsidies With Fake IDs, Documents
Undercover federal investigators with fake identities and documents were able to obtain subsidized health coverage through the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges, according to Government Accountability Office testimony that will be provided to a House Ways and Means subcommittee Wednesday. The GAO investigation was requested before the exchange's initial open enrollment period by Reps. Charles Boustany (R-La.) and Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).
