GAO Sting Finds It Easy To Fake It, Get Obamacare Premiums

The Government Accountability Office said Tuesday, eleven out of 12 fake applications for government-subsidized health insurance got through a verification process and the bogus beneficiaries are still covered. The GAO launched the sting to check to see how well the Obamacare process checks for counterfeit applications. The results were messy, GAO’s Seto Bagdoyan says in testimony prepared for a hearing Wednesday of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. Bagdoyan, who directs GAO’s Forensic Audits and Investigative Service, said in testimony obtained by NBC News, “The federal marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied online, or by telephone."
