White House: 375,000 visits to health care website
Wednesday - 12/4/2013, 6:30pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says the government's health care website received 375,000 visitors on Monday by noon. That's a surge in use on the first business day since Obama administration officials declared that the government's beleaguered online insurance service was now able to accommodate a vast majority of users.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the White House was expecting such a rush of traffic on Monday. He said the figure covered visits to the healthcare.gov site as of noon Monday.
The launch of the website on Oct. 1 proved to be disastrous. The administration spent the next two months working to upgrade the computer system.
Consumers were still experiencing delays on Monday. Carney says users were placed in a queue and advised when to return for speedier service.
