The newly formed Oregon Health Insurance Exchange Board will help people find different health plans so they can comparison shop. Governor Kitzhaber appointed Sunriver small business owner Aelea Christofferson to serve on the Board. She's made a name for herself on the subject of health insurance, as she has struggled to supply affordable health insurance to her seven employees. This new board should help people find different health insurance options. “So it's really a two fold approach. It's to help people buying their own health insurance to be able to do some research and its also a way for people who may be eligible or who's kids maybe eligible to get government help assisted health insurance and how to get that.” The Board must submit a plan creating the state's first health insurance exchange by February 1st.
