BATON ROUGE- The problem-plagued Obamacare website has assisted fewer than 400 people in Louisiana in signing up for health insurance.

The online marketplace is part of the president's health care revamp. The site has problems and left many people unable to enroll for coverage despite numerous attempts.

Fewer than 27,000 were able to get anything done and enroll in coverage in 36 states using the website federal health officials said Wednesday. In Louisiana, 387 people exactly were able to. More than 7,700 in the state filled out applications for coverage.

The site received criticism for its technical issues.
