Oregon Gets Funds for New Online Health Service

Oregon will get more than $48 million in federal funds to build a new Online Healthcare Exchange. It will allow people to compare, purchase and enroll in private health insurance plans. Oregon Senators Merkley and Wyden say these exchanges are the result of the 2010 Healthcare Act that allows individuals and small business owners to pool their purchasing power to negotiate lower rates. These funds will help the State build the technological infrastructure they need to provide the Online Healthcare Exchanges in 2014.
