Those consumers need to upload their documents by September 5 to HealthCare.gov, or mail them in.

Otherwise, their coverage will end on Sept. 30.

The letters are being sent in English and Spanish.

About 8 million people signed up for subsidized private coverage under President Barack Obama's law, but at one point more than 2 million had discrepancies that could have affected their eligibility. Officials say that's been greatly reduced.
