FEDERALSBURG, Md.- Representatives of the Maryland Healthcare Connection are driving across the state to answer questions and help guide people through the enrollment process for the Affordable Care Act.

"We're just out here educating the public on Maryland Health Connection and the new insurance, what it is and what it isn't.  Also how you can get information and how you can get enrolled." said Amanda Nelson, lead navigator for the Midshore region.

The bus tour was in Federalsburg on Tuesday, where seven people were enrolled on paper, and one using the Maryland Health Connection web site.

Tameka Lee, the navigator assisting in signups today, says there is a high demand for help and information.

"We started at twelve today, and they were already waiting in line for me to get here before I could even get out of the car." said Lee.

Nelson says that successful online registration is a sign that the troubled Maryland web site, though not as troubled as the federal web site, is improving.

"The web site has been working a lot better, so if you've had some success, keep trying, it should be getting better now.  And if you're not having success, you can schedule an appointment with a navigator, assistor, case worker, insurance broker, and have them assist you in the enrollment." said Nelson.

The bus tour will continue on Wednesday in Cambridge at Wal-Mart, Thursday in Salisbury at the north Wal-Mart, Friday at the Somerset County Courthouse in Princess Anne, and Sunday at the Wal-Mart in Berlin.
