MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota-based business will lead the efforts to fix the new government health insurance website, Healthcare.gov.

The federal government selected Quality Software Services Inc. on Friday. The company is owned by Minnetonka-based UnitedHealth’s Optum business.

Its president said the part of the website they were tasked to build had error rates close to zero.

Healthcare.gov has been plagued with problems since it went online on Oct.1.

On Friday, the consultant in charge of overseeing the fixes says the majority of the issues will be resolved by the end of November.
