Monday was supposed to be the deadline to sign up for Obamacare, but now some people get an extension.
After a surge in visitors to the web site healthcare.gov, more than 100,000 people stumbled across glitches and other technical issues on the site.
So the administration is giving them an extension.
Those on the site were told to wait to apply for coverage and were given the option to receive an e-mail stating when they could return to their sign up process.
"Basically if you had trouble signing up so if you tried to apply and you've gotten error messages or it's kicked you out numerous times then they're allowing those people to go to the extend mid-April deadline," says Lindsey Green, outreach and enrollment coordinator with Ritchie Regional Health,
For those needing the sign up extension their coverage will begin May 1.
Both the Good Samaritan Clinic and the Ritchie Regional Health Center in Parkersburg are offering help to those who need it.
