Oregon Health Exchange Executive Director Put On Notice

By Jim McCoy Fri 15th November NewsCover Oregonhealth careRocky King
The board of Oregon's health insurance exchange has put its executive director on notice, demanding to know when the website will work and how Cover Oregon will get people enrolled by Jan. 1. The Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/1j9A381 ) board members held an executive session Thursday to discuss Rocky King's performance and then passed resolutions calling for new target dates by next Friday. The board meets again Dec. 2. King says the staff is making progress and is optimistic about solving the problems. Cover Oregon has resorted to hand-processing paper and electronic applications. Members also expressed mistrust of its technology contractor, asking Oracle Vice President Tom Budnar when they should stop believing it, given a record of missed deadlines. Budnar says a "swat team" has been brought in to fix the site.
