These people need to enroll in a plan by Friday to get coverage on January 1st.
So far, Cover Oregon has enrolled 12-thousand in private insurance plans and 24-thousand in the low income "Oregon Health Plan."
Kat Reese of Bend recently attended Bend's application fair here and says for her, the process has been fairly easy.
"And then I heard that there were going to be delays in processing, so I was concerned I wouldn't make it, but I did. And I got the packet in the mail and it was followed up by an email."
The Cover Oregon website still is not able to allow applicants to go through the whole process on the internet.
They hope the site will be fully operational sometime in January.
Workers are still processing paper applications to get people enrolled.
