Official warns against insurance subsidy cheating

Posted:


       SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ A federal official says people should not cheat when they apply for health insurance subsidies under the nation's health care overhaul.
 
       Uninsured people will be able to seek insurance under the new health insurance exchange beginning October 1st. They will have to declare their income to determine if they are eligible for a government subsidy to help them afford the health insurance policy.
 
       Jeff Hinson of the Denver office of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says if people try to cheat by misstating their incomes, discrepancies will turn up when they file their federal income tax returns.
 
       Hinson spoke recently at a seminar in Sioux Falls that included representatives of several South Dakota agencies that will help people buy insurance.
