Healthcare.gov promises new streamlined application

For those of you who had the “pleasure” of working on the federal website this year, you will find this interesting:

 

The new application for new HealthCare.gov consumers is simple, fast, and more intuitive.

  • It’s simple. The consumer enters information only once. With the original application a consumer would need to re-enter the same data multiple times. Now, the system saves that data as the consumer moves through the application.
  • It’s fast. How long the application takes to fill out will depend on the consumer’s specific situation but the new application could reduce the number of screens by over 75 percent with fewer clicks to navigate through the questions.
  • It’s intuitive for users. The new application is more user friendly for consumers enrolling via the Marketplace pathway, or side-by-side model with simpler navigation and built-in help along the way.
