St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Despite a small server glitch Tuesday afternoon, the new Minnesota Online Health Exchange is up and running.

Just after 3 p.m. Tuesday, the MNSURE program went live, giving consumers a number of options for their medical insurance needs.

MNSure's executive director said 500 accounts were created, but officials said the number of enrolled customers was not available.

A full list of approved assisters and brokers, who can help people sign up, will be available by Wednesday.

Officials say the partial federal government had no impact on the launch.
