The federal healthcare exchange website HealthCare.gov got one million visitors Monday, the day of its well-publicized relaunch, according to a tweet from the website.

1 million visits to http://HC.gov  yesterday. Site stable, faster for users.

 
 
The site has been plagued by technical glitches since its debut two months ago, but changes have since been made to improve its performance. President Barack Obama will give a speech Tuesday on the site's relaunch, as part of a campaign to promote it ahead of the Dec. 23 sign-up deadline to receive coverage by Jan. 1. The administration hopes that 7 million people will enroll by March 31.

Consumer Reports, the highly respected consumer guide, said on Tuesday it was time for Americans to try out the site again.

"Now we're saying it's time," Nancy Metcalf, the magazine's health care reporter, said on MSNBC. "First of all, if you want to buy insurance that's in effect on Jan. 1, you have to do it pretty quickly -- you only have until Dec. 23 to enroll. So back end of the website, problems which consumers cannot do anything about, we'll hope those get fixed. What consumers need to focus on is how to enroll in the first place."
