San Francisco Chronicle

The website for Californians looking to buy health insurance under the federal health law went back online Monday after being shut down for five days.

Officials from the state’s health exchange, Covered California, said the online enrollment tool was up and running again by 4 a.m. It had been down since Wednesday afternoon because of software problems.

“Everything is fully operational and looks good now,” said Anne Gonzales, a Covered California spokeswoman.
