More than a quarter-million Americans who tried and failed to enroll for health insurance through the troubled website will be invited back this week to try again, a federal official said Tuesday.

Over the past weekend, technicians made software fixes that “address dozens of issues,” said CMS spokeswoman Julie Bataille.

The administration’s confidence in the system has improved to the extent that today, the agency will begin sending the first of multiple “waves” of e-mails to 270,000 individuals whose attempts to enroll were foiled in the weeks since open enrollment launched Oct. 1.
