Cover Oregon will allow people to peruse different plans starting October 1st -- though you can't actually sign up for plans until the middle of the month.

 

Local insurnace agent, Don Layton is working with the state to help people navigate the Cover Oregon site.

 

"I got a lot of concern from people who already have coverage and are concerned they are going to lose it and others want to know how they will be affected.  Others want to know what changes are happening -- they're asking "Is it really happening?"  The other side is people who have never had coverage or its been awhile since they had health insurance, who are excited to learn about subsidies."

 

Exchanges are being set up to give a big chunk of America's 48 million uninsured Americans health insurance options.

 

The enrollment period to sign up will run from October 1st to March 31st.
