HHS Secretary: HealthCare.gov Working Well, 100,000 Signed Up This Weekend

About 100,000 Americans have visited HealthCare.gov since Saturday and submitted new applications for health insurance coverage, Health and Human Service Secretary Sylvia Burwell said Sunday.

Obamacare’s second open enrollment period began over the weekend, and thus far officials say the website hasn’t been plagued by the same troubles that turned it into a punch line last year.

“I think the vast majority of people coming to the site were able to get on and do what they intended to do,” Ms. Burwell said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
