Obamacare Website Still Beset with Glitches

Ad Feedback

Americans seeking to access Obamacare's new online insurance marketplaces are still encountering technical glitches.

One woman in Iowa said the second day was even worse than the first. And one pastor in Minnesota tried at least 10 times to open an account on his state's Obamacare website with no success.

The same story was repeated across the country.

"It is still surprising that even 24 hours later, the same issue that people are constantly reporting has still not been resolved," Dylan Staley, a junior at Louisiana State University who was also unable to access the site, told Reuters.

Obamacare supporters say the glitches show there's high public interest in the new insurance system.

"Across the board, the interest is really overwhelming," Reuters quoted Anne Filipic, president of Enroll America, a private nonprofit group aligned with the White House.

"The fact people are visiting a website or calling a hotline to get information, that's the first step in a process to compare your options, talk to friends and neighbors and determine what makes the most sense," Filipic said.

But so far there are no solid numbers on how many people have been able to sign up.
