Monday at midnight ET is the deadline to sign up for insurance in the online markets created by President Barack Obama's signature health care law. Millions of people have piled onto the sites in the last days, and the federal government said as of last week, 6 million people had applied for insurance.
But the site, long-plagued by technology issues, was unavailable for approximately five hours again on Monday morning. Did you sign up? Did you encounter glitches? What's next for Obamacare, and was the initial enrollment period a success?
NBC News hosted a live interactive webcast Monday at 1:15 p.m. ET to answer your outstanding Obamacare questions. Hosted by Kate Snow (@TVKateSnow), the webcast also featured NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) and White House legislative affairs director Phil Schiliro, who is overseeing the health-care policy efforts.
