"Cover Oregon" is Oregon's new online marketplace for health coverage for people whose employers don't offer insurance or those seeking individual plans.


Lisa Morawski with "Cover Oregon" says the delay for large employers won't really affect them.


"In terms of Cover Oregon, we are just seeing smaller employers in our online marketplace, so it doens't have any imapct.  Smaller employers will still be able to shop and still have great options for small employers in Oregon."


Cover Oregon's website with its online health plans are on target to be up and running by October First.


The Obama Adminstiration's delay only aplies to the requirements for employers of 50 workers oremore.  None of the other requirements of the Affordable Care Act are being delayed.
