The Obama administration has gone back to the drawing board and now says it has designed a much simpler application for health insurance under the federal health care overhaul.

Details will be unveiled Tuesday, but administration officials say one key improvement is a three-page short form that single people can use.

The first draft of the application form was widely panned for its complexity. Administration allies feared uninsured people would give up in frustration.

Although the new forms may be shorter, it's not clear the administration can get rid of all the complexity. That's because consumers have to provide a detailed snapshot of their incomes to see whether they qualify for government assistance.

New health insurance marketplaces will start signing up customers Oct. 1 for coverage that begins Jan. 1.
