The Government Accountability Office (GAO) ran a two-year sting operation on the federal Obamacare site,, and was able to enroll 11 fake applicants using fabricated documents and even leaving some required information out.

All 11 were renewed this year, according to a report released yesterday.

Six applicants at one point were terminated, but GAO investigators posing as the fake enrollees were able to get five reinstated with even larger subsidies. The sixth terminated case was pending when the report was prepared in April.

Officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) told the GAO, upon learning of the report, that CMS is not required to detect fraud, even though it operates the site.

The investigative operation has since ceased.
