JUNEAU- A broker created to help enroll individuals in private health insurance under the federal health care law enrolled just over 800 Alaskans in 2013.

Tyann Boling is chief operating officer for Enroll Alaska.
She said the broker reduced its enrollment expectations following problems with the federally run website used to access plan information and enroll individuals. On a scale of one to 10, Boling had rated functionality of the site at one in October, four in November and seven around mid-December.
The revised enrollment goal was 1,000 by the end of 2013.
Boling says Enroll Alaska hopes to sign up 8,000 Alaskans by the end of the open enrollment period, currently running through March.
The broker isn't the only way for Alaskans to sign up for insurance under the law.
