Across 36 states, 115,000 people could lose their health insurance provided by the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, due to issues pertaining to citizenship and immigration status.

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 115,000 individuals have not responded to the agency's "numerous contacts" to fix immigration data matching issues. The CMS noted it will send notices alerting their last day with the ACA's health insurance, or Federal Marketplace, is Sept. 30.

Individuals had until Sept. 5 to fix immigration and citizenship status issues with the CMS. People who submit their appropriate information confirming their eligibility after Sept. 5 could receive a special enrollment period. Last month, the CMS sent letters to approximately 310,000 ACA enrollees who did not submit information about their citizenship and immigration status. The CMS said progress was made as agency saw a decline of disparities from 966,000 individuals to 115,000.

As Latin Post reported in June, up to two million enrollees risked changes to their pay or access to ACA benefits. Income information also risked health insurance plans for individuals. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Director of Communications of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Julie Bataille, 1.2 million enrollees have discrepancies related to income. Based on a statement released on Sept. 15, 897,000 households are "now closed or in progress" to fixing income disparities.

"The Affordable Care Act is working for millions of Americans who are able to access quality health coverage at a price they can afford. In fact, most individuals who selected a plan with tax credit in the Federal Marketplace are paying less than $100 a month in premiums," said CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner in a statement.

Tavenner added the CMS is committed to maintaining the health coverage for the individuals at risk but at an efficient and transparent manner.

"It's critically important that consumers who still owe income-related documents to the Marketplace send them in by September 30 so we can continue to hold down their costs," said Tavenner. "We are pleased that the number of individuals who were at risk of losing their Marketplace coverage, or seeing changes in their costs because of data matching issues has been dramatically reduced in the last three months."

As of Sept. 15, the CMS sent letters to nearly 279,000 households, or 363,000 individuals, with unresolved income discrepancies. Individuals have until Sept. 30 to deliver appropriate documents or risk change in insurance costs. The CMS said enrollees can contact their all center at 1-800-318-2596 to understand what documents are needed to submit to the agency.

The HHS said the ACA could provide approximately 10.2 million uninsured Latinos with health insurance coverage. The HHS noted 8.1 million of eligible uninsured Latinos could qualify for either tax credits to purchase insurance coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace, the Children's Health Insurance Program or Medicaid.

Meanwhile, the CMS is preparing its second open enrollment period starting Nov. 15. Unlike the first enrollment period, which lasted six months, the second period will last three months, ending in February 2015.
