HHS Issues Shorter, Simplified Version of ACA Application
On Tuesday, HHS released a revised Affordable Care Act application form for Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program or subsidies to purchase coverage through the ACA's health insurance exchanges. The form was reduced from 21 pages to three pages after the initial version was criticized for being too complex.
