Glitches Hit NY's Online Health Insurance Website



BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Computer glitches have hit New York's new website for state residents to shop for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
  
People visiting the NY State of Health website after its launch at 8 a.m. Tuesday were greeted with error messages when clicking on links to register as individuals or families. The links for employers, employees and brokers also experienced periodic problems.
  
A spokesman for the Department of Health blames the problems on the 2 million visits to the website in the first 90 minutes after its launch. He says the agency's technicians are working to fix the problem.
  
New York expects to enroll 1.1 million uninsured over the next three years.
