WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Friday that health insurance sign-ups have surged now that the government's website is working better.

More than a million people have picked a plan since Oct. 1, Obama said, a big jump from the end of November when just 365,000 had signed up.

But HealthCare.gov was down again part of the day.

Unusually heavy Web traffic is expected this weekend because of Monday's deadline to sign up so coverage can take effect Jan. 1.

Insurers say the government is still sending them inaccurate data, creating a risk when patients seek care.
