From a tailgating party with Gator fans in Gainesville to a beer festival in Pensacola, Floridians will have lots of opportunities to get in-person help whether they're signing up for the first time under the Affordable Care Act or renewing last year's plan.

"While we recognize that this Saturday was an inconvenience, being able to provide correct information to our customers is paramount to what we do." About 2,000 people were using the exchange each hour during the two [source] hours before it shut down Saturday. The exchange identified fewer than 800 customers who had their eligibility determined incorrectly and fewer than 150 hundred customers who had scheduled payment based on incorrect information. "We will be contacting each person to provide them with their accurate tax credit amount," Onizuka said.
