Received this notice from an association we belong to, not much more to be said

“solution” CMS has for random checking the subsidy eligibility for Exchanges starting 1/1/14. The CMS July 5th announcement that the fancy data-hub verification system will not be used the first year, so they’ll just accept whatever income the person verbally says.  This seems like a huge invitation for lying & fraud.  So, what is CMS’ “solution”?  They’ll make random calls to employer firms, and ask whoever answers the phone, “Is John Doe employed here, and does he or his family make $X thousands of dollars?”  Not only will the random person who happens to pick up the phone not know such very personal details, but also this will be a crisis for company morale & privacy.  (This is yet another reason why your clients & prospects need to have the P-or-P data & system in place for such calls.)”
Reminds me of when my high school would call home to verify absences, all legit of course, and how well that system worked. 2 years from now I bet we hear stories about 10,000 employers linked to a single phone number.
The IRS sent more than $46 million in tax refunds to 23,994 “unauthorized” alien workers who all listed the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to an audit report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
