Immigrants baffled by HealthCare.gov lapse
Immigrants are baffled by what looks like an obvious lapse on the government's health insurance website: There is no clear way to upload a copy of a green card.
That's the government identification document that shows an immigrant is a legal U.S. resident, entitled to benefits under the health care law.
The organization Foundation Communities, which serves many immigrants in Austin, Texas, says the government website doesn't list an option to upload a green card. Yet, there is a way to upload other documents.
Reaching immigrants, especially Latinos and Asians, is a priority as the administration seeks to increase the number of people signed up.
An administration official says a fix is in the works.
