White House: 375,000 Visitors To HealthCare.gov After Relaunch


White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that approximately 375,000 people visited the relaunched HealthCare.gov between midnight and noon ET.

Carney said the Obama administration anticipated there would be a surge in traffic to the federal health care exchange after its Sunday relaunch, and so those trying to enroll in a plan are entered into a queuing system that invites them to come back later. He cautioned that the number of people who visited the website on Monday does not correspond to enrollments, as users may shop around without enrolling in a plan.

The press secretary would not confirm reports that 100,000 people enrolled in health insurance plans through the federal marketplace in November.
