Amy Fauver with "Cover Oregon" says the website continues to have technical problems, but expanded enrollment for medicaid has already signed up 70-thousand people for health insurance.

 

"Despite the challenges to our Cover Oregon wbsite, we have been incredibly successful with our expanded medicaid program.  So far, we've enrolled 70 thousand adults through this enrollment piece and I want to emphasize these numbers are not included in recent exchange numbers and they really should be."

 

These medicaid participants do not need to go to the Cover Oregon website, they can be automatically enrolled thorugh a one page consent letter or by calling an 800 number.

 

Another round of letters will be going out in the coming weeks to get more medicaid people enrolled.
