North Dakotans have success selecting health plans

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota residents are having more success signing up for a health insurance plan through a federally run online marketplace.

Neil Scharpe is in charge of the state's so-called navigators who are helping inform people of their options under the new law. Scharpe says the state's navigators haven't heard of any problems in the past few days with the website.

The website had been plagued with problems for the millions of Americans, including thousands of North Dakota who have tried to sign up.

Scharpe says the website appears to be working smoothly now.
