Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) voted in favor of a bill that would mandate the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to have working verification systems in place to validate eligibility of applicants who are applying for the health care exchange subsidies. Latta cosponsored H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act, which passed the House Thursday.
On July 5, HHS released a final rule with more than 600 pages that rescinds requirements for the new state online health insurance marketplaces to verify the income and health coverage status of people who apply for the subsidized coverage, and instead will now rely on the "honor system."
The Senate has passed a similar measure through the Senate Appropriations Committee by unanimous consent.
