Two people reportedly enroll in Obamacare in Milwaukee

Milwaukee -- Two people have enrolled in Obamacare in Milwaukee Friday through the website healthcare.gov, according to a counselor at the Lisbon Avenue Health Center.

\"I've shopped with 3 or 4 patients but once we got to the end even though I hit confirm, it doesn't go through,\" said Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator Tina Chang.  \"These are the first two that we got through with a confirmation and then when you go back it says complete.\"

CBS 58 spoke with Noelle Stordock of Menomonee Falls, 23, who enrolled.  She tried on her own at home for a week but was unable to get in so she got help at the Milwaukee health center. \"[It feels] really good, really good, relieved,\" she said.

Stordock was unable to pay her premium because of issues with the website but Chang said the insurance company should be contacting her soon.

There's no official way to know right now exactly how many people from the area have enrolled in the Affordable Care Act. 

The website has been plagued with glitches since the roll out October 1st making it difficult for people to get through the application process.
