Without proof of citizenship, residency, 100,000 could lose Obamacare – LA Times
The New Republic says I’m ” Obamacare’s Single Most Relentless Antagonist .” The Hill says I’m one of the 100 People to Watch. I am the co-editor of Replacing Obamacare: The Cato Institute on Health Care Reform (Cato, 2013) and coauthor of Healthy Competition: Whats Holding Back Health Care and How to Free It (Cato, 2013). Though not a Republican, I served as a domestic policy analyst for the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee, advising the Senate leadership on health, education, labor, welfare, and the Second Amendment. I have appeared on ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, C-SPAN, Fox News Channel, and NPR. My work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, Forum for Health Economics & Policy, Health Matrix: Journal of Law-Medicine, and the Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics.

The issue is particularly acute in California, which has a large immigrant population. Last week, U.S. officials said the federal exchange serving 36 other states had more than 300,000 people who had not documented their citizenship or residency and risk losing coverage. 8 Lee said Covered California has been trying to clear up these inconsistencies and has already processed 600,000 documents to prove eligibility. The state will start sending notices to affected consumers early next month and follow up with more communication. “If individuals are not able to provide that proof by late September or October, we will have to terminate their coverage,” Lee said at an exchange board meeting Thursday. “This is not something we want to do.” Consumer advocates emphasized the need to communicate clearly in the government notices and offer information in many languages. @innercity JERRY BROWN NEEDS TO GO NOW!!!!
