HealthCare.Gov Goes Offline Overnight

WASHINGTON (November 2, 2013) HealthCare.gov, the problem-plagued health insurance enrollment website, is going offline until Sunday morning, the Department of Health and Human Services Department said.

A technology team will be working on the site, so people won't be able to apply or enroll from about 9 p.m. Saturday until around 9 a.m. Sunday.

The government says people can apply for coverage through the health marketplace call center at 1-800-318-2596, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The federal website locked up the day it went live, Oct. 1, and has been plagued by glitches since.

It has been taken down for maintenance before, usually for a few overnight hours.

The administration has said it's aiming to have HealthCare.gov humming along by month's end.
