A Letter from Healthcare.Gov

Dear Sir:

Congratulations! You have qualified and are eligible to receive a federal health exchange subsidy under the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In your case, this federal subsidy amounts to $4200 per annum. The subsidy assumes the information you provided to us about your income and your citizenship status and other particulars is correct . The subsidy is provided to you courtesy of your generous federal government.

However, you should be aware this federal subsidy may be withdrawn and you may have to pay it back if:

a) Our technology or outside technology experts, in the process of correcting and modifying the website, determine the information you provided to us is incorrect, insufficient, deficient, or misleading. This correction and modification process is ongoing and will continue into the future.

b) The Supreme Court determines that the wording of the Patient Protection and Affordable Act meant what is said, namely, that only citizens participating in the state exchanges were eligible to receive subsidies.

c) The lawsuit succeeds that was initiated by the House of Representatives claiming that the President exceeded his statutory authority as granted by Article 1 and Article 2 of the Constitution of the United States.

d) The Republican Party of the United States gains control of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Presidency and repeals the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

All of these events are unlikely to occur. In the meantime, enjoy your subsidy, and good luck in finding a physician who will accept your health exchange plan.

Sincerely and maybe forever yours,

Your Representative
