All the way up until the last minute, people from northeast Florida came by the dozens to a health clinic in Arlington for help signing up for health insurance through a federal government website.
But even the experts there to help ran into trouble.
No one could gain access to the Healthcare.gov website to register from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., not even Mincy Pollock. He was the man running the region's biggest registration event.
"It is an issue everywhere. There was a national conference call that Enroll America had this morning. They said we are just down; we can't handle it," said Pollock to our partners CBS47/Fox 30 Action News.
It's the same problem the site encountered when WOKV covered the story on the first day of enrollment six months ago. Pete Penna, North Florida'a regional director of Enroll America, admitted all these enrollment problems blocking countless people from logging in to register will prompt another delay, allowing possibly millions of people to avoid fines prescribed for anyone without health insurance.
"If they say they couldn't get on the website, we are going to have to take them at their word," said Penna.
Many others filled out handwritten forms, containing the same information as the website. Those who filled out those forms by yesterday will be given an extension.
