O'Malley: Most Problems Resolved On Health Website

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley says while he's confident nine major problems with Maryland's health care exchange website have been resolved, he says some computer glitches continue. O'Malley announced Monday that Optum/QSSI, a Columbia-based company has been brought in to help improve the overall performance of the website.

The governor also announced that CareFirst has agreed to extend the enrollment deadline from  Dec. 23 to Dec. 27 to help more people get coverage that begins Jan. 1. O'Malley conceded that not everyone may be able to sign up in time to get coverage starting in January. But he says the state will keep working to make sure they can get signed up in February.

O'Malley says the day with the highest number of people enrolled was Friday, with more than 900 enrolled.
