I'm trying to make a POST request to API v3.0, but I can not. Returns this error.

https://api.finder.healthcare.gov/v3.0/getCountiesForZip. Invalid HTTP status code 503

It's about CORS, but e tried all possible ways to request, following and enabling CORS, but nothing works

  • What are you including in the POST body? Are you including the appropriate Content-Type header? Dec 18 '14 at 6:39
  • Andrew's comment is consistent with the HTTP status code being returned.

Make sure you include the Content-Type header and the XML for the request in the POST body.

When I try their example it seems to work fine and the HTTP header includes Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * which should work for CORS.
