WTVO/WQRF - Experts from Google and other prominent companies are joining a "tech surge" to fix the struggling healthcare.gov website.
The agency overseeing the Obamacare site announced the additions Thursday after the site had crashed for over 36 hours. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the surge includes dozens of people with expertise in the site's key issues, namely reliability, stability, and large-scale operations.
Experts are also coming from software giants Red hat and Oracle.
Since debuting on Oct. 1, issues with the website have prevented people from registering and applying for coverage. Two major crashes in the past week also impacted state-run health care websites.
