Thu Oct 10, 2013, 11:50 PM

My wife called the ACA verification line and after speaking to a rep she will not be proceeding any

further.


After giving her social security number, her employer and address as well as my social security number and my employer the employer's address our hourly incomes they expect her to send a copy of either her: Drivers Lisc, School ID, voter ID, Birth certificate, social security card.

My wife is not at all comfortable with this whole ACA. She will be either finding insurance elsewhere or paying the fine. She doesn't feel comfortable she worries about identity thief. My brother stoled my identity before my wife and I got married 11 years ago. This is really unnerving too her.

You may call us crazy or trolls but this is way too much info to be comfortable giving.

Flame away if you wish but ask yourself --AND YOU DON"T HAVE TO ANSWER ON THIS THREAD BUT if any of you where asked to give ALL this information by anyone without knowing who is going to have access to the info how many of you are willing to give this stuff up.

You have to supply it every time you start a new job, for example.

67. You don't have to be a US citizen

But you have to be in the country legally.

Aliens who are “lawfully present in the United States” are subject to the heath insurance mandate
and are eligible, if otherwise qualified, to participate in the high-risk pools and the exchanges, and
they are eligible for premium credits and cost-sharing subsidies. PPACA expressly exempts
unauthorized (illegal) aliens from the mandate to have health coverage and bars them from a
health insurance exchange. Unauthorized aliens are not eligible for the federal premium credits or
cost-sharing subsidies. Unauthorized aliens are also barred from participating in the temporary
high-risk pools.

3. I hope you don't ever have to move then

because the driver's license bureaus in my area require similar info -- everything but the employment information. And of course they have to ask for that if you're trying to get a subsidy.

The Exchange is a government office. The government already has access to this info -- they're just making sure your wife is who she says she is. In other words, they're trying to stop people like your brother from stealing another person's identity.

elsewhere. I suppose someone could set up a fake "government" site. But, doesn't sound like the case here.

132. No. You can't.

Naive. Just how is you employer or doctor held accountable for stolen information?

This is not how things work. If it did, all the companies who have their databases hacked would be fined and would pay for all the losses that might occur. Several companies lose data every day. The government has a better record than any credit card agency.

I'm assuming you don't use credit cards and pay cash for everything. That you will not apply for social security. That you drive to the IRS center near you to file your taxes in person.

Lots of excuses.

Just drive to the nearest facility and sign up in person. (But take the proof of your statements with you.)

19. Rule of thumb: If you call them, it's generally safe.

Now, I mean, don't go to healthcare.com (if that domain has been bought by someone malicious trying to intercept stuff to healthcare.gov) and call a number there. You need to make sure you're calling the right number and speaking with the right agency. But if you are calling in to a number that you know is legitimate, you are safe to give them information and send information to the addresses they request.

If someone's calling you, however, NEVER give them information over the phone or mail them identity documents.

I understand paranoia in today's times, but in this your wife is safe. And she'll find out she has to give it somehow. There's a paper application, and maybe she could send the required document in with it:

http://www.cms.gov/CCIIO/Resources/Forms-Reports-and-Other-Resources/Downloads/marketplace-app-short-form.pdf

Would that be more comfortable for her, to know that the mailing address is on a Federal website and the same as the one on the exact form she needs to mail, like the address is to mail your tax returns?

24. your most sensitive information is firewalled in the government

portion of healthcare.gov. Portions of it will be forwarded to the insurance vendor, but this is the same information they would get as policy providers anyway.

Long story short, either you trust the government to handle that information or you do not. And if the latter, one might ask why you support the Democratic party. Because this is the kind of thing we have been saying that the government would be good at for decades now.

The government has records on a person. A person calling, claiming to be that person has to prove they are the person they are claiming to be. Just because the government has the records doesn't change that.

By YOUR logic, government workers can magically reach across time and space and use some metaphysical powers to verify that the person they are talking to is indeed the person they say they are.

it's silly for her to cut off her nose to spite her face. wait until no one will sell you insurance on the open market. those exchanges will start looking pretty good. before my bf got me on his policy, i was getting turned down for ANY health insurance.

Just helping her look at her options...either way if she had gone through the web sjte she would have had to provide some of that to give the choice of plans and then it would have been up to her to proceed and fill out the rest of that information IF she wanted to SIGN up for avspecific plan...i understnad how unnerving it would be giving all those ok ntimate details to a stranger....but he was only trying to help by filling out the full web request for pricing....sorry it was such a bad experience for her.

not only when you apply, but when you seek medical attention.

The stuff they ask for is pretty standard, but to each his or her own.

28. Unlikely. They'll always blame someone else.

Case in point, I mysteriously got a new credit card in the mail from BoA to replace my former card, stating my CC info had been compromised by a merchant. Problem is I haven't used that card in over a year. So almost certainly BoA's own system got hacked and they're trying to shift the blame to some nameless merchant.

Bottom line, our information is out there, so there's no way I would let a copy of my drivers license stand between me and health insurance.

9. When is the last time you filed forms for coverage?

Because whenever I'm "informing" any insurance company, this is standard fare... not that I agree about the use of SS#, but this does not set itself aside from any other third party reimbursement process your wife is going to have to go through.

I've done it lots of ways (on my own, and then getting eligible through my employer again) and that's the truth.

104. The rationality behind this doesn't make sense


I can appreciate that your wife is concerned about identity theft...but if she is THAT concerned, she can have fraud alerts put on her records with all of the major credit reporting bureaus, she can pay a small monthly fee for credit monitoring, or she can watch her bank accounts, credit reports, etc. like a hawk.

There are a million ways to be vigilant about identity theft and STILL prove you are who you claim to be for things like insurance purposes.

If she isn't proactively monitoring her credit and identity - then perhaps she should start.

10. I'm really not trying to sound mean here... but it's the government.

So yes, I know who is going to have access to the information.

The government.

So yes, I'd give that information. I didn't have to, fortunately, Two of the answers were obvious on the Experian identity verification, the other two were "none of the above". I had to re-verify three times (on two different accounts, the first attempt to verify didn't take even though I had all the right answers, and then my account got locked up for some weird wacky reason) but I was able to get it to verify for me.

In a way, the information is less than what you'd have to send in to your state's Unclaimed Property department if you couldn't pass online verification. I had some funds in unclaimed property, and went through a similar identity verification questionnaire.

I am not about to call you a troll, but I do have to say I'm afraid you're being a touch more paranoid than you need to be. You're calling the number, so you know who you're talking to. If someone was calling ME and asking for the information? No. But if I know the number I'm calling is from a legitimate website for the government, and it's the right number, I'd feel safe telling them whatever they needed.

All by business's security, not the government's. Edit to add: My identity has yet to be stolen.

The risk, in my opinion, is overblown. If your wife wishes to pay 2.5% of her household income in a few years to avoid that minute risk, that's her choice.

42. I am a licensed real estate agent in two states

and as such I am charged by state regulation, national and local association of Realtor ethics a fiduciary duty to preserve and protect the privacy of my clients and customers. The records are locked up tight, password protected and I wear out a shredder annually. The consequences of not doing so are forfeiture of my licenses, loss of my livelihood and criminal prosecution.

I have had numerous criminal and FBI background checks done on me and hundreds of hours of training and testing to acquire my license and know how to do all the above.

If you're my client, I can be trusted with your personal information.

Like most of us here I have not "read the bill" but I trust the ACA has protections for our privacy written into it and severe consequences for those who breach it.

20. The government is as suspicious of you as you are of them

You have to see it from their point of view as well. They need to be sure that you are really who you say you are because (1) they may be doling out thousands of dollars a year to you in subsidies; (2) you might try to use someone's identity who has lower income to get a better subsidy; (3) you might be someone trying to buy it for cousin Vinnie, who doesn't qualify for one reason or another; etc.

You have to show your drivers license every time you go to the airport, and often times at stores when you want to use your credit card. While worry about identity theft is real, it's ironic that it was someone close to you--your brother--who actually stole it, not some government worker trying to do their job. I wouldn't worry about the government so much.

The feds should pay for poor people to buy their ids. There also should be an extension on the deadline for people to have insurance. Either that or a grace period where they don't get fined if they are in the process of getting their ids. There are thousands of people, maybe even millions of people who don't have ids. That's why it makes it harder for them to vote in republican states that require it.

Right now most people are hanging back because of the website glitches. Will people know they only have a short time to get their documentation together? I forget though. You're not allowed to criticize the ACA on DU. I also forgot democrats don't like to admit or acknowledge that anything they do could ever possibly have any problems whatsoever. Everything the democrats do is always perfect from the get go and there is no need to talk about fixing problems within ACA, because obviously there are no probems within ACA. Sounds a lot like democrats attitude toward our public education system.

89. I've never said there weren't problems.

I don't like Voter ID laws because they aren't necessary. Voting doesn't cost a thing. The biggest issue on election integrity is making sure people are at the right precinct -- I know, I was a poll worker. I was able to help someone vote in 2012 by going to his car with him and helping him look for something, anything, with his address on it from the government. We found a food stamp application that was mailed to him. It worked, he voted.

According to the Feds, if you register by March 31st of 2014, you will have no penalty. So really, people only have to pay for 9 months of coverage in 2014. ANY means tested public benefit will require documentation of ID. Yes, the ACA has a thousand problems, but too much ID required ain't one. (99 problems was too few.)

I can't imagine worrying about showing the government documents they created for you in the first place. Hopefully this will be easier later, and you could always (I think) go through a local insurance agent as an intermediary.

Having recently refinanced my house, and had to file an unrelated thing with a local court, and having some recent college experience including FAFSA registration, its just hard to imagine worrying about things like that.

If you want to monitor against identity theft you can sign up for identitymonitor or something like that. Its pretty cheap, and pretty thorough protection. I had it for a little while when I was fixing some things in my credit file for the refi, so I could keep track of the changes.

It wasn't any information that I was the least bit concerned about giving. Just the basic things for ID purposes, plus a few questions about income and employment to help calculate eligibility for a subsidy on the premiums.

My only concern is that it doesn't seem to be going very smoothly. I certainly don't want a gap in coverage because of that. But, I think that they will get their act together in short order -- it's all new to everyone, and the response has been overwhelming.

The ACA does not sell you anything, they direct you to insurance companies which have agreed to sell insurance based on the parameters of the ACA, that's all. If you buy insurance without the ACA you will have to give them the same information.

Your reasoning makes no logical sense, and for that reason it sounds like republican fear mongering.

If you're concerned about your credit/identity, there are a variety of low cost services to keep track of any changes to your credit. I pay $4.95 and I'm instantly alerted about everything, including when an inquiry is made or an account is created.

Good luck, sincerely. Any other insurance carrier will request the same info, btw.

electronic ID heists from private companies have netted many thousands of stolen identities at a time.

Yeah, but ironically that makes the ID more secure. When they're only getting a handful, they are going to use every ID. When they get tens of thousands, the odds of any individual ID being used is lower.

How do you suppose it would work if they had no idea who you were? It would be far preferable if people did not have to worry about such things as medical bills but that is not the case. Also... I don't know about where you live but when I registered to vote, I had to show ID.

84. While I understand her concern

I would lay money on the fact that the ACA workers are sworn to the same oaths to protect all person identifiable information as I am as a census bureau employee. We take those oaths, there are three, once a year and are reminded several times during the year of the penalties including fines, termination, and prosecution--quite severe. Part of the oath is a clause that we will never divulge the information even after we leave our position at the bureau.

Besides, I see so much personal data that I couldn’t possibly remember any of it.

If they are registered voters, their voter registration card is good enough.



Edit to add, so no, your little smarmy BS about voters getting screwed over is false. If they registered to vote, they have sufficient ID -- their voter registration card.

It's also a huge false equivalency to compare the identity documentation required to get thousands of dollars in public money (not even a photo! a birth certificate will work, or a social security card, or a driver's license if they have one, or a voter registration card -- not all of them, just one of them) and the draconian laws requiring a person to show photo ID for voting.

Birth Certificate
Social Security Card
Voter Registration Card. (edit to add "voter ID" -- that's what that is)

Thanks for playing. And I'm sorry I'm being snarky. I have worked my ass off in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections to help people vote, and my state is lucky that they don't require Photo ID, but does require something with your registered address mailed to you from the government -- a birth certificate isn't good enough. One guy was nearly turned away until I went out there to try to help him find something, and we found a Food Stamp application that had been mailed to him. He got to vote.

I've done my damnedest to help people vote, and I've done my damnedest to help people get registered for the ACA. Stop spreading lies about what the ACA requires, and I'll be a little less snarky.

If I'm wrong, then they're wrong, too.

And edit to add: From another user who has had to go through manual verification, on another site:

When I reach a page called "My Applications and Coverage," I am given the option to view my pending application. It provides me with an ID number. At the top of the page is a message that says, "Regular Notification: You have a notice available about your identity verification." This is followed by a 'download' link. When I click on download, I open a pdf file with a letter explaining that I must send them a copy of an official identification and lists the various forms of identification that would be acceptable.

One copy of any of the following:

Driver’s license issued by state or territory
School identification card
Voter registration card
U.S. military card or draft record
Identification card issued by the federal, state, or local government, including o Military dependent’s identification card
Native American Tribal document
U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner

Or two copies of any of the following:

A birth certificate
Social Security card
Marriage certificate
Divorce decree
Employer identification card
High school or college diploma (including high school equivalency diplomas)
Property deed or

I'm directed to mail the copies along with an attached barcode provided at the end of the letter to its London, KY address.


http://nhpr.org/post/signing-insurance-marketplace-delivers-more-errors-results

Yes, a voter registration card will work, at least according to that user of the Exchange as well. Now, those two people may be wrong -- the OP, and the person who wrote this article.

But I think they're correct.

Until you do, I'm done arguing this point, and as I said, my snarkiness has a lot to do with misinformation I've seen presented and may have been partially misdirected. The ACA has a ton of problems, but requiring ID for means tested public benefits is nothing new. A voter registration card isn't good enough to vote in many states, but it IS good enough for the ACA, according to two people I don't think would lie about it.

142. Your ACA card WILL suffice as a voter ID card..

 

However to GET an ACA card and register with the exchanges you have to show ID, proof of social security number, citizenship.

School ID's an honest face and Starfleet Academy badges will not satisfy, The IRS is involved with enforcement, you have to be tied to your specific tax return for proper penalizing if you do not have insurance.

I went to the NM exchange and found out right away that my company benefits are well worth the modest increase to stay the hell away from the train wreck your tax return is about to become. This will probably stay so hosed up for a year, that it will go unnoticed, but get a bottle of the good stuff for your tax adventure in another year...... sign into the ACA and you will only have yourself to blame for your future tax woes. Be offended at this now, but I'll bet you remember this conversation a year from now when the IRS has its hand right - in - your - cookie jar.

Young people who have little to no skin in the tax game have no idea what they are in for with the ACA. Just owing tens of thousands of dollars in student loans will seem like Disneyland once the IRS takes a bite out their ass. I don't know what your situation is but my taxes are complicated, and I gladly pay good money to have them professionally handled. If you use a tax professional, ask them what the actual cost to you will be after joining the ACA. If you think by tax professional I mean Turbo Tax, Tax Monkies or a 90 dollar offer from HR Block to do your taxes -- then never mind ............. register with the ACA.....they need your money.

Look past the sales pitch, and the ACA reveals a very nasty financial reality for the middle class.

106. Um, the Federal Gov already has her SSN, and the state has her SSN and driver's license

And any and every employer she every had already has her SSN.

Heck one of my employers has copy of driver's license and my SSN on file, to monitor their parking lot.

Does she realize how many government employees already have that information? It's just another dept. and another batch of government employees because the depts at federal level are too large and unwieldy to have easily shared data.

My identity was stolen 7 years ago courtesy of Fidelity Investments and the ID theft ring operating out of Hewlett-Packard when Fidelity had a laptop "stolen" from the rental car of one of their VPs in the HP Palo Alto parking lot.

Frankly, I'm far more worried about employers having that information than clerks in the government. The government generally has a lot more security involved than the vast majority private companies.

Before hiring, they do background checks, credit checks, and we are fingerprinted and photographed on day one. Every phone call is recorded and every keystroke is also recorded.

161. everybody knows there have been identity thefts in the past

The one I experienced was due to corrupt fellow employees at HP and an either corrupt or phemonemally stupid VP at Fidelity investments. No call centers, prisoners or government involved. They stole all my pension info plus work and education history, along with prior address. I lost a few dollars for copies of the police report and postage, plus a lot of sleep for a week.

My point is that short of dropping out of society altogether, we are all at risk of identity theft now, all the time. The horse left the barn decades ago.

Refusing to sign up for ACA out of fear of identity theft is like refusing to step outside and go to work or food shopping or whatever because you may get hit by a car.

You step outside to live. You take what precautions you can to ensure you don't get hit by a car, but the fact is you can take every precaution there is and still get hit by somebody determined to hit you.

But the odds are still very much in your favor and after a couple decades of horror stories there are now many systems in place to help you.

I've had a 7 year fraud alert on my credit bureau reports for the last 6 years and 10 months or so. Since that expires in a couple months, over the next couple weeks, I'll be contacting the 3 bureaus and locking down my credit. Because of my theft, they have to do it for free, and if I remember correctly they have to re-open if for free at my request (slight variations per state, some allow a nominal charge of $10 or so). So it will be a little harder for me to get credit, but my thieves won't be able to use my id ever again. Problem solved.

People who are offended by the questions asked by the government in order to gauge what policies they should be offered on the public ACA exchange obviously have never applied for health insurance on their own.

179. If you have kids in a school system

that uses a security system like Raptor Visitor Management, http://www.raptorware.com/, your wife will never be able pick up your child(ren). Need to have some form of picture id to run through the system.

Besides by giving her and your SS# she has already provided sufficient info to a ID thief to begin the process.

180. She probably has to prove she's a citizen

It's typical to ask for a SS# and have a form of ID that links you to the SS# to prove you're a citizen before you get services that you have to be a citizen to receive.
