- Product Type: American Insurance Assistance Website
We want to be fair here and mention that Healthcare.gov is working relatively well right now as of this writing. Yet when it first launched, it had some problems. The website launched soon after the passing of the Affordable Care Act in the United States and was part of the Health Insurance Marketplace. This allowed Americans to get financial assistance to help them afford proper healthcare if they qualified. Yet people ended up seeing a “Please Try Again Later” message on the website during the first week it went live. Sometimes it completely crashed or had sluggish response times. The reason for the problem was the high volume of viewers. They expected around 50 to 60,000 viewers but ended up seeing close to 250,000!! It just wasn’t ready for that kind of traffic.
