State exchanges to rely on honor system for now

States running their own Affordable Care Act health insurance exchanges will be allowed to wait until 2015 for comprehensive verification of purchasers’ income and insurance status under new HHS rules. Federally run exchanges will randomly verify applicants’ eligibility status in 2014, but state-run exchanges may rely on applicants’ statements until 2015, and they may randomly check income status in 2014 rather than checking income for all applicants. Some health policy experts noted the relaxed verification could lead people to overstate their earnings in states that did not expand Medicaid so they are eligible to obtain subsidized coverage on public exchanges.
