Healthcare forms can be complicated and time consuming. When the first draft of the form that Americans will use to apply for health coverage under the nation’s new Affordable Care Act was made public, the reaction was unpleasant. The forms totaled 21 pages and had redundant questions.
After revisions the Obama administration released a new draft of the form. The new version is shorter; going from 21 pages to five and is easier to understand. The application for families has also been reduced by two-thirds.
These forms are now consumer friendly and less overwhelming.
The Washington Post detailed the shorten application. The Washington Post also included a full PDF of the new appilcation which can be viewed below the article. Read the full article here.
