Oregon Housing Blog

Van Pelt highlights the more than 300,000 "enrolled in health care coverage since October thanks to Cover Oregon ... and the Oregon Health Authority."

That figure includes:

  • 55,000 people enrolled in private plans using the backup manual processing system set up to cope with the exchange's technology issues.
  • more than 120,000 people enrolled into Oregon Health Plan after the exchange forwarded their information to the state for processing, a workaround for the exchange's broken Medicaid interface.
  • 125,000 people enrolled directly into the Oregon Health Plan using a streamlined system set up to bypass Cover Oregon.
