On September 12, 2013, the House of Representatives approved H.R. 2775, the “No Subsidies Without Verification Act,” on a vote of 235 to 191. The bill would prevent ACA health insurance premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions from being provided until the HHS OIG certifies that an effective program is in place to verify applicant income and coverage qualifications for these subsidies. While supporters maintain that the bill is needed because the Administration’s planned self-attestation and audit framework could allow fraudulent subsidy payments, the Administration strongly opposes the bill on grounds it would create unnecessary delays in obtaining affordable coverage and is unnecessary in light of the HHS verification system. The bill is unlikely to be considered by the Senate.
