Almost half of U.S. residents don’t think the health care exchange website are working well.

The U.S. government has enlisted the help of three major American software firms, Google Inc. (NSADAQ:GOOG), Ret Hat Inc. (NYSE:RHT) and Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ:ORCL), to help it repair the roughly 500 million lines of computer code that has vexed the website in facilitating signups for government-mandated health insurance.

Several news outlets reported the development on Thursday afternoon.

According to USA Today, quoting Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, ""As part of the 'Tech Surge,' we've added key personnel from the government and private sector, including expert engineers and technology managers. These dozens of people are strengthening and reinforcing the team we have working 24/7 to address the problems around HealthCare.gov."
