Healthcare.gov revamp promises simpler sign-ups

It’s almost universally accepted that Healthcare.gov’s launch was an absolute nightmare. The next iteration may very well not be, thanks to the new blood that’s been working tirelessly on a redesign since last November. As Wired tells it, once the revamped site launches this November 15th, it will employ something that was missing the first go ’round at all levels: common sense. That means the site will use Amazon’s cloud services as a back-end just like Netflix and Instagram, which should help avoid the black-outs from overloaded servers version 1.0 suffered. What’s more, the sign-in system has been vastly simplified. Instead of using a login requiring a special character like an underscore or a dollar sign, your email address acts as a username. A new option to sample plans without inputting any personal info will be implemented as well, and the entire process has been optimized for those scoping out plans on a mobile device. If you weren’t among the initial 5.4 million insured under the Affordable Care Act, this fall might be the time to start a new application.
