If you're still looking to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act, you have some extra time as problems with the healthcare.gov website persist.

The Obama administration announced that the enrollment deadline has been pushed back eight days to December 23.

Those who purchase insurance by that date will have coverage beginning January 1.

Analysts say that about 200,000 Americans have registered through state-run exchanges, while the Department of Health and Human Services has not released figures for the federal website.

The administration says that it's been working on design changes and software fixes to get the site running properly.
