The Healthcare.gov website is still plauged with problems and the administration hopes to have them fixed in the next month.

 

Oregon has its own state exchange called "Cover Oregon" -- but that website isn't fully operational either.  Yu can look at plans, but can't enroll in them yet.

 

Local health insurance expert Patrick O'Keefe says there's a lot of anxiett over the delays.

 

"So it's crunch time.  We're concerned that the website will only be up in mid November and we only have until December 15th to sign up.  So now instead of two and a half months to sign up, we'll have maybe a few weeks."

 

O'Keefe says he expects the individual  mandate to be delayed given all the technical problems these websites have been having.
