The Social Security Administration (SSA) is getting ready to feed information into the system the federal government will use to decide which people are eligible for government health plans and insurance purchase tax subsidies.
The SSA has talked about the plans in a new “proposed routine use” notice.
The notice is set to appear in the Federal Register Friday.
The federal Privacy Act of 1974 requires the SSA to publish a notice in the Federal Register whenever it adds a new “routine use” for SSA program records system.
The notice must describe the users of the information and the purpose of the new routine use.
PPACA requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to develop a streamlined eligibility determination system.
