The improved HealthCare.gov didn't enjoy a great start

  • The HealthCare.gov was supposedly improved but the site's error rate got spiked when it got flooded with traffic yesterday. 

    The government turned on "queuing" by 10 am in order to put would-be applicants on hold. The bad news is that only 35,000 people were using the site, which is less than the promised space for 50,000. The administration mentioned later in the day that 750,000 people were able to use the site by 5:30 pm. 

    The issue is that several people might not have bought coverage since that part of the site is plaguing with errors. The administration said it's encouraging people to check if they're successfully submitted their payments and to also check with their insurer.
