After initial problems, South Georgians are finding it much more easier to sign up for Obamacare.     

April Bush with Primary Care of Southwest Georgia helped more than a dozen people sign up since most bugs with the healthcare.gov web site were fixed a month ago.     

She says that's good news for many uninsured people in the area. "It's a really big relief because there are so many people that wanted to try to get insurance, they just couldn't get enrolled, now that we are actually able to keep things going smoothly, it's a huge relief," said April Bush, enrollment specialist.       

Health insurance coverage went into effect Wednesday for those who signed up by December 23rd. It's not too late to sign up. To sign up visit healthcare.gov
