LA CROSSE, WI -

It was a challenging first week for the online health insurance marketplace.

The Affordable Care Act program allows people to sign up for health insurance online.

The first week saw several glitches including slow servers and website crashes.

A representative from Gundersen Health System says very few people in our area have been able to sign up so far, but he reminds people it's still early in the sign up process. "We try to tell people try to stay as patient as possible, you have until December 15th to purchase insurance to be covered by January 1st so there's still some time," said Gundersen's Executive Dir. of External Affairs Michael Richards.
