Healthcare.gov, the online marketplace bedeviled by bugs since its launch last fall, went down for several hours Monday morning, a statement from the Department of Health and Human Services said. The “tech team is working now to bring the system online as soon as possible,” HHS said in a statement.
The site later appeared to be operating, but it was putting customers in a “queue”, meaning they’d be notified by email when they could proceed with enrollment.
