Tina Edlund gave an update on how things are going for the November 15th start date for people to enroll for health insurance again.

 

She says they have a new "landing page" that will help direct Oregonians where they need to go.

 

"But if you don't know whether you should go to Medicaid or Healthcare.gov, the landing page will help you.  We like to say there's no wrong door policy.  We want people to go there and end up in the right place."

 

Edlund says they have had to move more services over to the state data center sooner than originally planned since Oracle refused to offer services outside what is stipulated in the current contract.

 

Of course Oracle and the state are suing each other over the failed Cover Oregon website.

Help Puerto Rico
