Healthcare.gov, the marketplace and website used to sign up for health insurance, will be down for “extended “maintenance” Saturday night, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

The application, enrollment tools, and “data hub” will not be available from 9 p.m. ET until 9 a.m. ET Sunday.¬†Customers can call a toll-free line to apply for insurance during those hours.

The Obama administration has come under fire for the numerous technical problems on the website since its launch on Oct. 1. Officials plan to have the website fixed by the end of November, hoping to enroll 7 million for insurance policies by the end of March.
