WASHINGTON Dec 4 About 29,000 people signed up
for health insurance through the troubled HealthCare.gov website
on Sunday and Monday, a number that is higher than the site's
first month of operation in October, sources familiar with the
numbers said on Wednesday.
In October, only about 26,000 signed up through the
glitch-prone website, and intensive efforts are being conducted
to work out the problems with HealthCare.gov.
The information is being reviewed, but it looks like the
total will be 29,000 for enrollment in the federal exchange for
the first two days of the site's relaunch from midnight Sunday
to midnight Monday, the sources said.
