No new technical problems for health exchange site

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Officials say the website that holds Kentucky's online health insurance exchange appears to have become smoother for users on its second day of operation.

Kynect had nearly 110,000 visitors through late Wednesday afternoon, with about 10 percent of them starting applications for health care coverage. Nearly 7,000 applications have been completed.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the site, http://kynect.ky.gov , had no interruptions in service on Wednesday. Technical glitches on Tuesday interrupted online applications for several hours on the first day of the six-month open-enrollment period under the new health care law.

Technical problems were also reported in other states, and some continued into Wednesday.
