Obamacare exchanges see problems with eligiblity data: watchdog

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 08:09

People read pamphlets as they wait in line at a health insurance enrollment event in CudahyBy David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Online insurance marketplaces created under President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law have struggled to verify whether Americans who applied for government subsidies to purchase health insurance are actually qualified to receive them, a federal watchdog agency said on Tuesday. The Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General said in two reports that some "internal controls" were ineffective in verifying eligibility at the marketplaces run by the federal government, California, Connecticut and some other states. Applicants for subsidies must enter income data, Social Security numbers and other information into the online systems. The maximum household income allowed for a subsidy is four times the federal poverty level, or about $94,200 for a family of four.

Arizona psychiatry professor says fired over marijuana research

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 07:57
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - A University of Arizona researcher hoping to explore whether marijuana can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder was fired in a move that she said on Tuesday was payback for her high-profile advocacy regarding the work.      Dr. Sue Sisley said her non-tenured position as a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry has not been renewed, and said the dismissal amounted to retribution for her efforts to push for the study and not about her job performance.     “It appears this is happening because I am at forefront of the most controversial research happening at the university,” Sisley said in a telephone interview.

The migrants, a group of adults and their children numbering about 140 people, were en route to the facility in Murrieta, California, where U.S. immigration officials said they most likely would be released under limited supervision to await deportation proceedings. The arrival of the undocumented immigrants at a border patrol station in Murrieta, about 60 miles (97 km) north of San Diego, sparked an outcry from the town's mayor, Alan Long, who said the migrants posed a public safety threat to his community.

The boy, wearing "Angry Birds" jeans, black leather boots and a white rosary around his neck, had come from his home country of Guatemala and apparently got lost in the Texas brush, near the border with Mexico and less than a mile from the nearest home.

U.S. fans catch soccer fever, but team slumps to defeat

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 07:36

USA fans react during the 2014 World Cup Group G soccer match between Germany and the U.S. at a viewing party in Hermosa BeachAmerican soccer fans decked out in red, white and blue flocked to stadiums and giant TV screens on Tuesday to see their team knocked out of the World Cup by Belgium in a heart-breaking game. Strong performances by the U.S. team in Brazil had ignited passions in a country not known for its love of soccer, and free viewing parties were held from coast to coast while fans crammed into sports bars and restaurants. "All in all, Belgium deserved the win, but I'm pissed as hell," said Christina Psomopoulos, 17, a high school student who watched the match in New York's Bryant Park with two American flags painted on her face. Showing the spread of World Cup fever in areas more often obsessed with a different sort of football, some 2,000 fans had lined up an hour early at the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys - the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas - to watch on one of the biggest video screens in the world.
