The heart of the shutdown-- the online healthcare marketplace-- is up and running. But just because it's up, doesn't mean everyone has had access.
Insurance Agent Patty Wissing, with Ellberbrock Norris, told News 5 she tried to get on the website Tuesday with no luck.
Despite nearly 10 tries, Wissing said the heavy traffic kept her off the site.
And with more and more clients hoping to register on the marketplace, how does that affect business?
Wissing said she was instructed to take clients' information down on paper applications and then input the information on the website during the early hours of the morning or late hours at night when traffic on the website is low.
