LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- In two weeks, the brave new world of health care reform begins in Nevada.

The Nevada online health insurance exchange is scheduled to launch on Oct. 1.

That is where, thanks to Obamacare, Nevadans will be able to shop for coverage.

But the question today is, will it be ready?

There are so many questions right now.

Will health care for thousands of Nevadans be jeopardized if these online issues are not fixed by October 1?

The state health exchange said they're hustling to fix dozens of the online glitches with Nevada Health Link.

That's the website where residents who qualify can enroll for the health insurance program that best suits them.



The exchange director estimates the website is about two weeks behind schedule.

Some issues include some confusion on the website. Some of the terminology is not easy to understand and there are some display glitches.

Also, a Spanish language portal is not scheduled to debut until the middle of November.

Jon Hager, the exchange director, says he hopes the website is running smoothly by the time open enrollment starts.
