These changes should be up and running this fall.  Many of the people who will  be signing up currently don't have insurance.

 

Ron Pollack with Families USA says these exchanges will give these people access to health insurance.

 

"For the lowest income folks, they wil be eligible for the expanded medicaid program. Oregon has decided to expand the program to 138% of the poverty level.  For a family of four, that would be $32,500 for a family of four and for an individual living alone it would be $16,000 dollars."

 

Oregon is on track to launch its exchanges by October 1st.  But a recent repot found that these exchanges in 30 states, could miss the deadline for open enrollment.
