Meeting the Healthcare Deadline

Meeting the Healthcare Deadline

December 23, 2013

NATIONAL (WENY) -- After a mad dash to sign up for coverage on healthcare.gov, the numbers are in.  More than one million people visited the healthcare.gov website on Monday.
     Hoping to help people meet the deadline to enroll, federal health insurance officials pushed back the deadline by a day, to today. They are acknowledging the site still has problems.
     Enrollment in the plans under the Affordable Care Act is falling below expectations, especially on the troubled federal website that is handling insurance for 36 states.
