There have been Affordable Care Act website problems for two months, though in Pierce County - where residents use the Washington state exchange - 18,439 folks have signed up for health care since Oct. 1.

On Saturday, at 13 Pierce County locations, there will be live 'assisters' at each site to guide you through any questions as you sign up for health insurance.

So, if you're afraid of computers or health insurance, or afraid of computers and health insurance, today between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. there's free help.
