MIAMI (AP) — The Obama administration promised "significant improvements" in accessing the federal health overhaul website after taking down the system for maintenance over the weekend. But many in Florida were still unable to enroll at the start of week two.
Technicians were working round-the-clock to add equipment to expand the site's capacity and making software changes that had already cut wait times in half since Friday. The site was to go offline again at 1 a.m. Tuesday for more work.
Meanwhile, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will talk to navigators during a Tuesday visit to Tampa. But it could create an awkward moment since very few Floridians have been able to actually sign up for health coverage or even browse plans because of website glitches.
