    To their credit, they've made the phone number more prominent on the waiting page:

    In a hurry? You might be able to apply faster at our Marketplace call center. Call 1-800-318-2596 to talk with one of our trained representatives about applying over the phone.

      but that's a pretty crappy statistic. Does that include the people trying at 3:00AM? Does it count the thousands who give up after a minute?
