One of the two Iowa carriers offering policies on the government website says the situation is improving.

Cliff Gold is chief operating officer of CoOportunity, and he says the situation is "clearly getting better." He says the company has had as many applications in the first 11 days of November as it had in all of October.

CoOportunity also has received about 190 applications from Nebraskans via HealthCare.gov. The computerized insurance markets went live Oct. 1, and millions of consumers encountered frozen screens.

Coventry Health Care is the other major Iowa carrier selling insurance on HealthCare.gov. Coventry declined to say how many people have signed up for its policies.
