MIAMI (AP) — Some consumers who purchased insurance under the new health law are confused because they received varying subsidy amounts and are now stuck in lengthy appeals processes trying to figure out which estimate is accurate.

As consumers wait for a resolution, some have decided to go without health insurance because of the uncertainty while others who went ahead with policies purchased through the exchanges worry they are going to owe the government money next tax season.

Government officials say consumers probably made some mistake entering personal details such as income, age and even ZIP codes. The feds said consumers should feel confident they received an accurate determination based on the information they provided in their application.
