WASHINGTON The troubled health insurance website is going offline until Sunday morning.

The Health and Human Services Department says a technology team will be working on HealthCare.gov, so people won't be able to apply or enroll through the site.

The site will be down from about 9 p.m. Saturday to about 9 a.m. Sunday.

The government says people can apply for coverage through the health marketplace call center -- 1-800-318-2596. That's available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The federal website locked up the day it went live, Oct. 1, and has been cranky since. It's been taken down for maintenance before -- usually for a few overnight hours.

The administration has said it's aiming to have HealthCare.gov humming along by month's end.
