New state exchange still slow

Update: It now appears that people can't create accounts on the website. If you already have an account you can sign in, but there is no longer a prompt to create an account.

The Maryland Health Connection twitter account is suggesting that people sign up in person with organizations it has hired to enroll people in plans. You can find a list here.


 The new state exchange where Marylanders can buy insurance under health reform continued to experience technical difficulties Wednesday morning because of a high number of users

Maryland Health Connection had immediate problems when it opened for the first time at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning and some of those issues are continuing. Read more about that here.

The main issue is a log jam to create an account to use the system. Technicians continue to work on the problem.

"Account registration is currently experiencing high volumes of users and is unable to process your request," read a note on the site. "Services are currently operational so please try again shortly."

State health officials have said that the bright side is that people are interested in health reform and that they had expected some glitches.
