WASHINGTON (AP) - As many as one in six District of Columbia residents who tried to sign up for health insurance have been blocked by problems with the D.C. health exchange.

Exchange Director Mila Kofman said Tuesday that as many as 500 applications were left in limbo Monday night at the 9 p.m. cutoff for selecting coverage to begin Jan. 1. The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1qZz6Jb ) reports some residents thought they completed the application but received error messages at the end.

Kofman says 2,631 people were able to enroll successfully.

Employees at D.C. Health Link will be contacting each applicant in the next several days to go through a follow-up process to make sure their applications are processed. Kofman says those residents can still get coverage beginning in January as planned.
