A wrinkle in the HealthCare.gov website that temporarily left some children without insurance coverage has been fixed, federal officials said Friday.
Children who have been denied Medicaid coverage can now be added to a subsidized plan, the CMS said in a letter to a New Hampshire congresswoman.
U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter wrote to CMS after report by The Associated Press revealed the glitch last month.
Children who qualify for Medicaid cannot be covered under subsidized family plans purchased through the federal online markets. That left some without coverage until their Medicaid eligibility was determined while others who were rejected for Medicaid still couldn't be added to their parents' plans.
