President Barack Obama talks on the phone with Solicitor General Donald Verrilli in the Oval Office, after learning of the Supreme Court's ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act June 28, 2012.

As my colleague Joe Klein reported yesterday, the Department of Health and Human Services released today new application forms required for people to join the new health care exchanges in 2014—a three-page application for individuals and a seven-page application for families (11 including the appendix). According to Klein, the average private insurance plan is 17 pages and can go as high as 35. An Administration official told Klein that the new applications took on average seven minutes to fill out in the paper version and less online. Here are the new individual, family, and individual without financial assistance application forms. You can also find them below:

"...to fully appreciate it, you should compare it to some of the applications available today. In my home state of Michigan, as in many states, the largest insurer selling individual coverage is Blue Cross Blue Shield. The application for its “One Blue” plan—you can see it here—is longer and more complicated than Obamacare’s. And if you look closely, you’ll see why. The application has a whole page of questions about prior medical conditions."

@grape_crush Wonder why they would care about prior medical conditions?

Surely it is not to deny coverage.
