MNsure Site Has Another Glitch 08 Oct 13

Officials with Minnesota’s new online health insurance marketplace say that some registration problems have been fixed, but a new one has emerged. The new MNsure glitch is apparently affecting fewer people, however, and appears to be intermittent, but it is preventing account registrations that are required before people can buy health insurance. Officials say that anyone having that problem should wait a couple hours and try again. Despite the latest glitch, Minnesota’s health insurance website continues to draw interest. The site drew 4,300 unique visitors on Monday. Nearly 6,000 people have created MNsure accounts since the site went live last week and started offering health insurance as a state exchange – a key part of President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
