Today is the big day for the Ohio Government Exchanges. Lets see if I can get quotes for coverage as promised.
After selecting Get Insurance from http://www.healthcare.gov, Ohio, and Apply Now, this is the screen I was delivered to.
It told me to please wait, which seemed reasonable enough. ….then the crashes began.
Yes, it crashed on the second screen. This was at 0623 AM Easter Time on 10/1/14.
I finally got in after refreshing several times. Then I was able to creat a login and a password. I got to a screen that said I needed to answer some Security Questions, which is normal for any website. Small problem, it offered no Security Questions for me to answer.
I tried to move on from that screen, thinking I could go forward and skip it, but it returned errors.
Then it kicked me out, so I had to go back through the login screens.
I entered my password that I just created, but it did not let me in.
Then I went to Forgot Password, It told me that it sent me an email with instructions.
That never came to my inbox.
For now, it appears as if the Marketplace is not working.
