Just as happened when HealthCare.gov launched on October 1, users are encountering problems with the website for the federal health-care exchange on the final enrollment day. CNN’s John King noted that he ran into error messages about half the time he tried to log on this morning.
“The system isn’t available at the moment,” a message on a number of the site’s web pages read Monday morning. “We’re currently performing maintenance. Please try again later.”
The site began functioning properly around 8 a.m. An administration official told the Hill that the error messages were a result of extending the off-hours, nighttime maintenance window beyond its regularly scheduled time.
