Healthcare Site Improvements Meet Dec. Deadline

Posted: Updated:

After a rough start the White House has announced that its healthcare website should be up and running normally for users.

The white house set a deadline of December 1st to improve the website ttp://www.healthcare.gov and over the weekend it released a report touting significant progress.

Some 400 software bugs and hardware problems have been fixed but they admitted more work is still needed.

The administration said the site is now accessible 90 percent of the time can handle 50,000 users at once and 800,000 a day.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said "the President believes that the site has been significantly improved and that the teams in place have worked 24/7 for weeks now to make those improvements, including significant improvements that were made over the weekend."

The site fixes haven't been tested with heavy traffic and the administration is advising users to visit the site during off-peak times to avoid delays.
