Last-minute enrollment efforts across Missouri are expected to boost the number of consumers gaining coverage through the new federal health insurance law, but organizers say the deadline push won't hit anticipated enrollment targets.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she'll be shopping for a health care policy on the new federal insurance exchange but won't be taking a subsidy.

Missouri Senator Roy Blunt says the federal government's difficulty launching Healthcare.gov this fall is not really what's wrong with the Affordable Care Act.

President Obama's administration has struggled to address a myriad of problems with the site since launching Oct. 1, including users being unable to create accounts and load web pages.

Blunt cautions residents not to consider the website as a measure of whether or not the President's signature health care plan is working.
