Thousands of Maryland residents have enrolled in the state's new online marketplace for health insurance, but technical issues remain a problem.

More than 13,000 residents have created accounts on Maryland Heath Connection, the state-based online marketplace for health insurance.

The Connection's executive director, Becca Pearce says a technical team has added server capacity and plans to update the system's software to accommodate the large number of people getting involved.

Pearce also says there have been 170,000 unique visitors to the website, and more than 10,000 people have dialed in to the call centers since the connection opened on October 1.
