HealthCare.gov tops 1 million visitors; deadline extended
USA Today

More than 1 million visitors logged into HealthCare.gov by late Monday, racing to meet the administration’s new midnight, Christmas Eve deadline to enroll in health insurance.

Officials pushed back the Dec. 23 deadline by a day, acknowledging the site was still having problems signing people up. Earlier Monday, more than 60,000 people hit the landing page when it was too busy to accommodate them and left an email address so they could be alerted when the site wasn’t busy, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
