The Obama Administration is reworking HealthCare.gov, an online site that allows people to purchase health insurance. The Administration says that now the site will better accommodate 70 percent of its consumers, with a faster, shorter online application to buy insurance. The shorter application has fewer pages, questions, and screens to navigate. It also allows people to sign up without clicking the mouse as much as before. The new application can only be used by people who have not signed up for health insurance through the federal health care market. The second annual enrollment period will begin in mid-November. If everything goes according to plan, the new application will cause less frustration and more customer satisfaction.
