MADISON (WXOW) -- Wisconsin residents who were planning to sign up for health insurance on day one of enrollment through the Affordable Care Act are having to wait.
That's because the website at healthcare.gov is not working, making it impossible to access the federal marketplace online.
Wisconsin residents who want to enroll in Obamacare must use the federal marketplace, because Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) declined the opportunity to set up a state-run exchange in 2012.
Attempts to log in to the site and search insurance rates for Wisconsin have been unsuccessful. The site either freezes at some point or redirects to a screen that states: "The system is down at the moment. We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please try again later."
