Cover Oregon Officials Go Before Lawmakers to Update the Progress at the Health Exchange


Leaders at the health exchange recently went before lawmakers to give them an update.

 

In the last week that the agent portal has been up and running for insurance agents to sign people up, the enrollment numbers have been steady.

 

The individual portal isn't there yet, but Cover Oregon officials told lawmakers they're getting there.

 

Aaron Karjala is the Chief Information Officer for Cover Oregon.

 

"We are focused on polishing the defects.  We are continuing to deal with issues that number between 8 to 20 and not hundreds of issues."

 

In the last week, the agent portal has signed up 17-hundred Oregonians for health insurance. There have been blips in the system since it launched, but Cover Oregon has been able to address them as they have come up.

 

So far, Cover Oregon has been able to sign up a quarter of a million people, including Oregon Health Plan and Medicaid members.
