THUMBS UP AND DOWN: Counselors helping people use the federal government's online health exchange are giving mixed reviews to the updated site, with some reporting no problems while others face the same old delays and crashes.

STRONG DEMAND: The site appeared to generally run smoothly early Monday morning before glitches began slowing people down. About 750,000 had visited the site by Monday night — about double the traffic for a typical Monday, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

WORK IN PROGRESS: Even when consumers think they've gone through the whole application process, their information may not get to the insurer without problems.
