Tuesday was the day you can start shopping for health care coverage, but it was easier said than done for some.
When many went to the New York registration web site this morning, they saw an error. This was a problem for other states, as well. A spokesperson for the department of health says the system was overloaded. 2-million people visited the sites in the first hour and a half after the launch at 8 am.
In our area, people who could not get online to check out the plans, were able to speak with experts, or people they are calling navigators, at the Anthony Jordan Health Center on Holland Street. They will be there to answer any questions about the new Health Care Reform Act. They're expecting to see nearly 4,600 people to come in looking for help.
We spoke with Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy about the problems with the web site Tuesday, and he wants to remind people, that it's the first day of enrollment, and to be patient.
The Jordan Health Center services around 26,000 people, which officials say nearly 20 percent of those patients do not have health insurance.
