92 thousand Oregonians have signed up for private health insurance on the federal website.

 

That's up from last year's Cover Oregon numbers -- where 77 thousand signed up for coverage.

 

You can two more weeks to sign up for private health insurance on Healthcare.gov before enrollment closes.

 

Aaron Patnode, Executive Director of Cover Oregon, isn't surprised by this year's larger enrollment numbers.

 

"So it's just a fact that people are a little more confident and can enroll in a plan online in one sitting .. and that is driving the success this year."

 

Oregoninans on the Oregon Health Plan can continue to sign up for the state's Medicaid program beyond February 15th.

 

Those who lack health insurance face penalities of $325 per adult or two percent of a person's income, whichever is more.
