Tina Edlund, the head of the Cover Oregon Transition Project says it will be similar to annual sign ups employees have to do for health insurance through their employer.

 

"There are 80-thousand enrolled in qualifeid health plans that will have to re-enroll.  We were hoping to do a block file transfer to the federal website, but there are identity management issues , because you have to set up separate accounts in the federal system.  We are working closely with CMS to make it as easy as possible."

 

More than 400-thousand Oregonians have enrolled in new health care this year.

 

That ranks Oregon 7th out of 15 states that started their own health exchanges.

 

The next enrollment period will be November 15th.
