Oregon: 4,400 more people squeak onto the rolls before OE2 starts...
OK, that was unexpected. After a solid month without any updates, last week CoverOregon, being dismantled even as we speak as the state makes the move to HC.gov for #OE2 (Open Enrollment Period 2) suddenly issued a new update. I figured it was their last hurrah before going silent, but it seems they've decided to put out one (or possibly 2?) more updates before going to the Great Beyond:
November 3, 2014
Update: Private coverage and Oregon Health Plan enrollment through Cover Oregon
Medical enrollments through Cover Oregon: 420,450
Total private medical insurance enrollments through Cover Oregon: 105,661
Oregon Health Plan enrollments through Cover Oregon: 314,789
Total private dental insurance enrollments through CoverOregon 1: 20,893
Net private medical: 77,288
Net private dental: 13,782
Compared to last week, that's another 606 total QHPs added, plus an additional 3,788 added to the Medicaid tally.
Those 606 aren't enough to make up for the ongoing attrition, however; the net number of 77,288 is down 173 from a week prior...but OR's currently-enrolled number is still over 13% higher than it was back in April.
