No Healthcare.gov? No problem, private sites say

USA Today, November 25, 2013

Almost two months into the troubled launch of the government's new online health insurance store, Jerry Zweiger wants you to know — he beat the line. The 35-year-old collection-agency owner bought his coverage that met the Affordable Care Act's requirements in half an hour. It took him five minutes to enter his information and about 20 to compare plans, he said. The trick: He bought it at eHealthInsurance.com, one of the privately run sites the government has approved to sell coverage under the Affordable Care Act, including granting permission to connect to HealthCare.gov itself — once it works right.
