It's a large undertaking and so Governor Kitzhaber has asked the Acting Head of the Oregon Health Authority to lead the transition involving multiple agencies.

 

Tina Edlund will be the Transition Project Director to make sure Oregon is on board for the next enrollment period in November.

 

"We have created a project so we can transition to the federal exchange and move from Cover Oregon to OHA for medicaid patients.  The entire goal is to make sure there is a single point of accountability."

 

The Cover Oregon website will continue throughout this year serving those who signed up for coverage.

 

It's still unclear whether these people will need to reapply on the federal website come November.

 

Medicaid patients will eventually be served by the Oregon Health Authority and those buying private plans will use the federal health exchange.
