Tech Trouble Plagues Healthcare Rollout


By Alabama News Network

About 19 million people have logged on to the healthcare website, or at least tried to, since the roll out on October 2nd. 

A lot of people haven't been able to use the system, and Governor Bentley thinks things will only get worse. 

"There are a lot of problems with the law, I think that these are technological problems right now. I think there are greater problems than what we're seeing right now. When the taxes kick in, when people start having to pay for not having insurance, when young people find out they're going to have to pay a lot more for insurance cost," said Gov. Bentley. 
But not everyone has had a lot of trouble with the system. Randall Williams, co-owner of New South Publishers, says he couldn't log on the first day, but he's had some luck.
"Since then, I've been able to get online a couple times and gathered information. So I don't think there's going to be any problems signing up. And of course we have until December to do that," said Williams. 
He's already found some options that will save him money and he's been happy with the new system.
"For me personally, I'm going to be able to get the coverage I have now except it will be better coverage and it's going to cost less. I don't really see that I have anything to complain about."
