Once you have completed your application for an Obamacare subsidy at the Marketplace; an Eligibility Report is generated. This report will inform you of any inconsistencies in your application and provide you with clear instructions on what to submit and how. The Health Insurance Marketplace will typically contact you through mail, email and/or phone. Under these circumstances, you will be required to provide copies of specific documents to verify that your information is accurate. Be careful of inbound calls, make sure you know who you are talking to before you give them personally identifiable information.
Certifying immigration status and/or verifying income are critical parts of the actual process.
