(Salem, OR) -- A technological advisory committee is recommending that the Cover Oregon health-care exchange be scrapped. The panel says the state should switch to the federal exchange, which would cost about five-million dollars. Cover Oregon consultant Deloitte says that's compared to the estimated 78-million it would take to partially fix the Cover Oregon website. The Cover Oregon board is scheduled to vote on the recommendation when it meets today.
