Is the new health insurance application form too long?

This final note today, courtesy of the Associated Press. The AP got its hands on an application for benefits under the health care law. A draft application, we should say. It’s 15 pages long, could take anywhere form 30 to 45 minutes to fill out.

It was characterized as a “daunting” process in some of the reporting we read today.

So we went out and did an unofficial poll: Do you think it’s worth it? 45 minutes in exchange for health care benefits?
