Cover Oregon Expected to Move to the Federal Health Insurance Exchange

The technology work group met Thursday and their recommendation will be presented to the full Cover Oregon Board Friday.


They were considering between going to the federal exchange versus trying to fix the state health exchange.


Fixing the existing system would be 78 million and officals felt it would be take too long and be too risky.


Going to the federal system would cost between 4 and 6 million dollars.


Oregon is expected to continue using its current technology for Medicaid enrollment, but not for people buying private plans.
