1. USA Today: HealthCare.gov Tops 1 Million Visitors; Deadline Extended Officials pushed back the Dec. 23 deadline by a day, acknowledging the site was still up having troubles signing people. Earlier Monday, a lot more than 60,000 people hit the squeeze page when it had been too busy to support them and left a contact address so they could be alerted when the site wasn't busy, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services .‘That reduces or actually eliminates the risk of these medications transitioning to some other problem that was never intended.’ Discovering who’s likeliest to get rid of up using the medications long-term is critically essential due to the widespread problems connected with their misuse, he says. ‘Many people will suggest it’s actually a national epidemic.
