Local signups for insurance under the federal health care reform law are going more smoothly… but far from flawlessly, according to the county public health director.
Jim Stone says there are fewer glitches with the healthcare.gov website, but there are still periods of downtime.
Phone assistance has now been set up to help people who run into snags online. And while local signup numbers through the county health department remain low, Stone says they are picking up.
Yesterday’s deadline to sign up for insurance that would take effect January 1st has been extended through the close of business today.
