Oregon: OFF-exchange QHPs near 93K, continue to be 50% of total

As I noted a week or so ago, there's a slight discrepancy between Healthcare.Gov's ON-exchange QHP tally for Oregon (currently 92,059 as of 1/23) and the state insurance division's record (85,912 through 1/25). This turns out to be due to a combination of lag time between HC.gov recording new enrollments & the state insurance dept. receiving them, plus the fact that one of the companies is only reporting paid enrollees, not total, which skews the numbers. As such, I'm using HC.gov's data for the on-exchange QHPs.

However, for off-exchange QHPs, the only source is the Oregon Dept. of Insurance, and this has gone up a couple thousand people over the past week or so:

The Insurance Division will collect enrollment information from carriers each week throughout 2015 open enrollment. Updated numbers will be posted each week on this web page.

Members enrolled,
Nov. 15-Jan. 25
On Healthcare.gov 85,912
Outside of Healthcare.gov 92,872
Total 178,784

So, that's 92K on the exchange plus another 92.8K off the exchange. There's also a 2-day thru-date difference, so we're still likely talking about a 50/50 split here.
