Frustrated by Health Insurance Exchanges? Experts say 'relax'

Posted: Updated:

The Affordable Care Act kicked in on Tuesday and not only has it been the subject of fierce political battles, but the online marketplace has been bogged down with technical problems.

Thursday we traveled to the Covenant Community Care location in southwest Detroit. It's one of five community outreach agencies that offers healthcare to people without insurance. It's also a place that has received federal funding to help with outreach and enrollment.

Josyln Pettaway is in charge of outreach. "We have been hearing a lot about the technical difficulties. People have not been able to log onto the website, some of the security passwords haven't been working. But we've been telling people to just really relax. You have 6 months to enroll in the exchanges. If you can't get on this week, just give it another try. Maybe next week. But in the meantime you can find out about a variety of health care options available to you."

For more information about the health options available check out healthcare.Gov or call 1-800-318-2596.
