WASHINGTON — White House officials said Monday that the administration was considering allowing people to sign up for health care coverage directly with insurance companies as a way to work around the struggling HealthCare.gov website.
“I certainly wouldn't rule that out,” said Jay Carney, the White House press secretary. “It's something that we've talked about and are working on.”
Carney also said that although the website was improving, there would always be a portion of the population that will complete their applications offline, either because of remaining technical glitches or for other reasons.
“It has always been the case that we need to make sure that there are other avenues for people either with complex situations or people who would rather not perform this kind of purchase online,” Carney said.
