Health care website gets down time for repairs

WASHINGTON – It’s not the sign the Obama administration wants people to see on its health overhaul website: Down for repairs.

Using overnight hours this weekend to debug the system, the Health and Human Service Department hopes to fix the technological problems that overwhelmed the launch of new health insurance markets.

Glitches have frustrated millions of consumers unable to complete their applications.

HHS says enrollment functions of the healthcare.gov site will be unavailable during off-peak hours this weekend. The department hasn’t released a schedule for hours of operation, but a spokeswoman says the site will be taken down at 1 a.m. each night for a few hours.

The website will remain open for general information.
