The Obama administration announced over the weekend that the HealthCare.gov website is now working “smoothly for the vast majority of users”, and is dramatically improved from October 1st.
In preparation for Saturday’s deadline, there have been a variety of improvements made to the site, including a new management structure and hardware upgrades. The site’s capacity has also been improved to handle 50,000 concurrent users, and a minimum of 800,000 visitors per day. However, officials caution that the site is still a work in progress, and more updates will continue to be made to the back-end of the system to ensure that insurers are getting accurate information.
For more information on the upgrades to the system, including a full progress report from the Department of Health and Human Services, visit NPR.com.
