(NEWSER) – Some 115,000 people who haven't proven they're citizens or legal immigrants are due to lose their coverage under ObamaCare at the end of the month, the administration says. They were asked several times to provide documentation showing their eligibility but haven't done so, says a rep for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Advocates for those poised to lose their coverage say that many have tried unsuccessfully to send in relevant documents, either by mail or through the ObamaCare website, the New York Times reports. "It is unduly harsh to terminate coverage while there are still technical problems with the federal system for verifying citizenship and immigration status," says an analyst.
