The report, produced by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, examined Affordable Care Act tax credits meant to defray the cost of insurance premiums. It found that as of June 2015, “the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence.”

The review found the credits went to more than 500,000 people – who are illegal immigrants or whose legal status was unclear due to insufficient records.

471,000 Medicare and Medicaid Services confirmed that these people weren’t able to prove their citizenship and immigration status on time – but stressed that this does not necessarily mean they’re ineligible.

Ann Coulter’s book, “Adios, America! The left’s plan to turn our country into a third world hellhole”, did all the research and discovered that there are at least 30 million illegal aliens in our country.

I think Medicaid Services have a big problem, it’s called DENIAL! (This isn’t a river in Egypt).  They work for the government which is controlled by the Obama Administration. The Democrats need voters and the rich need cheap labor. The liberals want diversity so Obama’s, “pimp politics,” pleases all his cronies by abusing the Constitution and the honest, American, taxpaying citizens.

“Lack of verification does not mean an individual is ineligible for financial assistance, but only that a Marketplace did not receive sufficient information to verify eligibility in the time period outlined in the law,” CMS spokesman Aaron Albright said. Why did they not check eligibility at SIGN UP?  Are people who work in Obamacare Dept. that stupid?

The Senate report also accused the administration of lacking a solid plan to get that money back – and predicted that in the end, the IRS will be “unable to fully recoup the funds.”

The feds are on a “pay and chase”approach. Under the law, the feds can dole out these payments on a temporary basis if a recipient’s legal status is unclear, but are supposed to cut off funding and coverage if the recipient does not later come up with the paperwork. Up to a half-million “ineligible” people, according to the report, applied in this way — with their credits paid in advance to the insurers. The IRS, though, is supposed to get overpayments back from the individuals themselves.

The Senate report says the IRS and HHS initially failed to coordinate on a plan for recouping funds, and claimed that a subsequent plan from the IRS to recoup the money is still “ineffective and insufficient.”

In a July letter to Johnson, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen assured that the agency is “committed to identifying and efficiently addressing” improper payments.

If they can’t identify the illegals how in the hell can the feds get overpayments back?  Do they really think these illegals will come forward and do the right thing?
