Oct 8, 2013


BALTIMORE (AP) - Officials say more than 13,000 residents have created accounts on Maryland's online marketplace for health insurance.

But technical issues remain in using Maryland Health Connection, the state-based health insurance marketplace, officials said Monday.

Becca Pearce, the executive director, said in an emailed statement that the Connection's technical team has added server capacity and plans to update the system's software.

Pearce said there have been 170,000 unique visitors to the website, and more than 10,000 people have called the call centers, since the connection opened on Oct. 1.
