Gov't diagnosis: HealthCare.gov on the mend (12/2/13)

WASHINGTON - Computer crashes should be giving way to insurance coverage - if the government's diagnosis of its health care website is correct.

The Health and Human Services Department released a progress report Sunday on its effort to get the troubled HealthCare.gov website up to snuff. Administration officials say the worst of the online glitches, bugs and delays may be over and the site is on the mend.

Yet officials acknowledged more work remains on the website.

How much work? That's the key question before the next crucial deadline on Dec. 23.

That date is likely to be a major test as consumers rush to meet the deadline so their coverage can kick in on the first of the year.

Officials say more than 50,000 people can log on to the site now and they estimate that more than 800,000 people will be able to shop for insurance coverage each day.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
