Cover Oregon Says 7 Thousand Enrolled

By Jim McCoy Mon 16th December NewsCover Oregonhealth care
The director of Cover Oregon says the state's insurance exchange has enrolled an estimated 7,500 people in private health plans. The number released Monday is a significant increase over the 730 people who'd been enrolled a week ago. Cover Oregon's acting director, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, says many more people will be enrolled before the end of the month. Oregon significantly lags other states because its online enrollment system still doesn't work. The state is using paper applications, and more than 400 workers are processing them manually. Goldberg says Cover Oregon will hire two experts to review software code written by Oracle, the primary contractor developing the exchange technology.
