Healthcare.gov Repairs Nearly Complete

It's been six weeks since the Healthcare.gov site went live with what has been one headache after another for Americans trying to sign up for coverage and the Obama Administration alike. The reported six week sign-up numbers are dismal, an average of 1,000 people per state, but administration officials say Web site repairs should be completed by the end of November.

Connie Gonzalez has the report...

Over a month and a half later, the Affordable Health Care Web site continues to encounter countless problems, but now the Obama Administration says repairs should be complete by the end of November.

In the mean time, local volunteers can help people better understand their options under the new health care law.

Community Medical Center Volunteer, Amber Waters, says "We can give a side-by-side comparison of the plans that are being offered by the marketplace; however, if you are looking for those tax credits, we wouldn't be able to tell you what you individuals qualify for."

Since the roll out, Community Medical Center employees say only 30 people have sought help. Volunteers assisted two people in filing paperwork for future enrollment.

"We can still discuss this, we can still be of some help, we can still answer as many questions as we can. It is amazing how many people do not understand insurance, [do not] understand the terminology; so we are still able to be of help to them."
