Now a new series of shorter and easier applications have been released by CMS. Stinging from criticism that the new Health Care applications were too long and too complicated, the Obama administration went back to the drawing board. The new individual application has been reduced from the 21-page original draft to just 3-pages long and the family application was reduced by 2/3rds to just 7-pages long.
Depending on your circumstances, you will need to choose one of three applications to enroll for health care under the Affordable Care Act: the individual short form, the family application or the application for individuals without financial assistance. And the best news of all for consumers…now you can get the personal assistance of a licensed and certified insurance agent to explain and complete your application form.
AMERICAN INSURANCE will have several licensed and certified health agents to assist you. Early enrollment for a January 1, 2014 start date is set to begin on October 1st this year. Please contact us with your questions about your health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act.
