Online Federal Health Care Exchanges Still Experiencing Glitches

Posted: Updated:

Technology experts are working around the clock to correct the problems on healthcare.gov, while lawmakers, including Michigan Representative Mike Rogers are demanding answers.

Members of Congress want to know why the website was ever broken in the first place.

Hearings into the troubled site begin Thursday.

 It's taking some frustrated Americans days to make progress while trying to sign up for affordable health care. Applicants sometimes lose information they've completed and are forced to start over again.

 US Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says it's not too late to get things fixed.

New CBS polls shows only about 12% of Americans say signing up is going well.

 The website is supposed to help 40 million Americans with their new health care exchanges.
