They were in Bend last Friday where more than 300 people signed up for appointments to start the enrollment process.


Sam of Bend was there because he's been without health insurance for several years.


"I had health insurance, but I got into a car wreck and they told me my insurance was not feasible for a car wreck.  I didn't know that when I got it.  I was really mad, so I canceled it.  Why didn't they tell me.  But now my knees and hips went bad and I can't work.  I'm just tyring to survive."


Leanne of Bend lost her health insurance last year, but says the options aren't great.


"If you look at osme of the plans, they are $600 to $700 a month and the dedutible are $6000 and you have to pay that before they cover anything.  I'm going to the E-R.  By law they have to treat me.  You are going to have all these people who have coverage but don't have the money for the deductible."


Well over one thousand people applied during the fairs around the state in Mefrod, Eugene, Bend and Portland. 


There's a final fair in Salem today (Mon).
