No Promises on Nov. 30 ACA Website Fix: U.S. Tech Chief

(HealthDay News) -- The nation's chief of information technology would not confirm on Wednesday whether the hobbled HealthCare.gov insurance exchange website would be fixed by month's end.

Todd Park, U.S. chief technology officer, who serves as an advisor to the White House, said the team's goal is to get the site "working smoothly for the vast majority of Americans" by Nov. 30.

"The team is working incredibly hard to meet that goal," he told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee under oath.

His comments came the same day that federal officials released enrollment figures for the first time. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that 106,185 Americans have selected plans from the federal and state insurance exchanges, sometimes called marketplaces. The Obama administration had hoped to enroll as many as 500,000 people through HealthCare.gov by the end of October, according to internal memos.
