Obamacare site crashing has not only risen as a trending topic this evening, but error screens and Obamacare problems on the Web in general are plaguing applicants across the U.S., reveals MSN this Tuesday, Oct. 15. A majority of users who are trying to access Healthcare.gov to create an account and start the enrollment process for the controversial Obamacare are finding that the site is often shutting down, freezing, or stalled with similar technical issues.
The Obamacare site crashing has many skeptics of the new health care program joking that the website itself will be plaguing U.S. people much as the site is already going through some hiccup problems, but the Obama administration seems to be working hard to get the Healthcare.gov site up and running smoothly once again. Although tech officials are making progress in working through issues the millions-times and counting website that will offer access to the president’s upcoming healthcare reform, a new blockade presented itself on the Web just this Monday. It seems to portend that consumers may have a rather hard time getting themselves registered and enrolled before the insurance coverage plan will begin Jan. 1, 2014.
From the onset of the Obamacare site, recurring error screens and site crashing problems reared their ugly head. Now, a few weeks after the official launch of new health insurance plans being presented under Obamacare, applicants had the chance to formally create their accounts and start registering via Healthcare.gov and the dubbed online insurance marketplace.
However, only a few pages into the complicated process, pages freezing and error messages became clear, leading the public applicants frustrated. Both nonprofit groups and health insurers seem similarly vexed by the Obamacare site crashing, as these are no doubt interested in trying to aid the millions of still uninsured Americans sign up for these new benefits that will come under the national healthcare law.
Says one witness experiencing difficulty, despite some positive signs, with problematic screen errors and the Obamacare site crashing:
"We have seen progress every day," said Nasim Zahran of Miami's Borinquen Medical Health Care Centers, where hundreds of people are waiting to enroll in coverage. "Today was the first day that we got all the way to the last screen. But then an error screen popped up saying the site would be down for 72 hours," Zahran said.
Just in the first recent weeks, nearly 15 million visits arrived at Healthcare.gov, showing that the demand for Obamacare (or at least interest at this point) is certainly present, but the website’s limited chances of actually letting these online applicants make it to the enrollment pages are plaguing these would-be users.
“It is becoming an increasing focus of Obamacare's Republican foes, who say the government was not ready to implement the law and should have delayed it,” concluded the news release.
