(Washington, DC) -- The White House is touting big improvements to the Healthcare.gov website. Administration officials said yesterday the site is working for the "vast majority" of users. Jeffrey Zients is heading up the website repairs and says a five-week emergency "tech surge" has doubled the capacity of the online health insurance portal. He says the site is more responsive and less prone to errors. The administration says Healthcare.gov will now be able to support more than 800-thousand customers per day and that the site is now online more than 90 percent of the time, excluding scheduled downtime for maintenance.
