It is only day two of the mandatory health insurance sign-up process under Obama Care and the Nevada Health Link website has been down for the majority of the time.
As the fight over Obama Care continues and the federal government remains shutdown, Nevadans who are trying to sign up for health insurance are greeting with a variety of messages.
On Tuesday, the Nevada Health Link site was partially operable, however, visitors were unable to sign up for health insurance. Visitors to the website were greeted with a message asking visitors to return at a later time.
Today the website is completely offline with a message indicating that there is a server error.
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.
Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a “web.config” configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its “mode” attribute set to “Off”.
The website is also experiencing other problems. The online calculator to determine out-of-pocket costs is not functioning and a Spanish language portal will not be available until November.
A visit to the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange does have a functioning calculator, however consumers are unable to sign up on the site.
Are the members of the Republican Party who largely oppose Obama Care correct in saying that Obama Care is not ready for prime time?
