Iowans Still Having Trouble with Healthcare Exchange

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowans wanting to get signed up for health care insurance under the nation's historic health care overhaul aren't deterred by a third day of technical glitches with the federal government's computer system.
   At Broadlawns Hospital in Des Moines 12 certified financial counselors have been helping applicants attempting to get signed up for insurance.
   Betty Spratt the financial counselor supervisor says 128 people sought assistance Tuesday and 123 on Wednesday. Thursday's numbers haven't been compiled but it's been busy.
   She says the computer system still kicks people off so her team turned to telephones until operators said they too were having technical problem and asked the counselors to try back in a few days. They're turning to paper applications.
   Spratt says spirits are high and people are optimistic they'll get insurance.
