Obamacare Appeal Lawyer

Roughly 22,000 Americans have filed requests for the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) to fix errors in their health insurance coverage caused by HealthCare.gov glitches, but the computer program to process those 22,000 requests has yet to be built, the Washington Post reports.

The appeals were filed by people who say that HealthCare.gov — the website that serves as the Obamacare portal for 36 states — failed to correctly calculate the subsidies they’re eligible for, sent them into the wrong insurance program or completely denied them coverage, the Post reported after obtaining internal government data.

The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the lead agency responsible for implementing the healthcare reform law, issued a statement saying it was reaching out to consumers with error-ridden enrollments to help them complete applications for coverage without a formal appeal.

The statement came in response to a Washington Post report that said about 22,000 Americans have appealed to CMS for help fixing enrollment mistakes that have led to excessive charges, enrolled them in the wrong health plan, or denied them coverage altogether.
