More HealthCare.gov woes: Website loses connectivity

An Obama administration official tells NBC News that Verizon's subsidiary Terrmark, the company that operates the data center for healthcare.gov, is experiencing an outage that started earlier


Sunday. NBC's Kristen Welker.


The company that operates HealthCare.gov experienced a connectivity glitch on Sunday, another complication for an already beleaguered population of would-be health care applicants.

White House officials said the company that operates the hub, Terremark, is working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Health and Human Services spokesman Joanne Peters said in a statement that the website is down because the company "experienced a failure in a networking component, and planned maintenance to replace it brought down network connectivity to the data center."

"Our understanding is that this failure is likely impacting several other sites, in addition to HealthCare.gov and the Data Services Hub," she added.

The October 1 launch of Obama's healthcare law, also known as Obamacare, has been marred by technical glitches and delays.

The department has encouraged website users to contact their call center to apply for coverage.

NBC's Kristen Welker and Reuters contributed to this report.

Yet another glitch? How many is that now (rounded to the nearest hundred)?

It's almost like Obamacare is being sabotaged.
