Oregon Health Care exchange has yet to enroll a single person


quote:

With a reputation as a pacesetter in health care, Oregon laid out bold plans for complying with the federal overhaul. The state wouldn’t just create a health insurance exchange, a complicated undertaking in its own right. Oregon officials set out to build one of the biggest and best in the nation — a model that other states would want to copy. But more than a month after Cover Oregon’s online enrollment was supposed to launch, reality is lagging far behind Gov. John Kitzhaber’s grand ideas. The online system still doesn’t work, and the exchange has yet to enroll a single person in health insurance.

But they get unlimited lifetime coverage in the future if they ever do sign up so it was worth it...

They haven't launched their website yet.

Cover Oregon officials say they’re working hard to finish the project and insist the features they’re creating will be worth the wait — even if it remains unclear when the site will go online.


Would be kinda tough to sign up on a site that isn't online.

So it shares a similar but expanded feature of Obamacare.

Child, you do understand I've been opposed to the HCA. However it does send a tingle up my leg that you think of me throughout the day. Especially when I don't know who you are.

As for the Oregon plan, I'm not familiar with it. It's got it's own exchange separate from the multi-state federal exchange of the HCA.

I don't know what it does but according to the article, it hasn't been launched. Hence my statement

On Friday, the state announced plans to hire at least 400 people to process the paper applications.


It's good see that the Oregon employment numbers will be better.

I also wonder if they are being limited to 29 hours/week.

HCA? Really?

Especially hillarious given this just made it to page 2:

Obama Care Legacy

My prediction: The Affordable Healthcare Act will be known as "HCA" in the year 2020 and beyond. It will be as much of an accepted entitlement program as Social Security. Sure it will be amended from time to time, but it will be an embedded part of the government.

Add SpiderTuba to your list of people on that bus to hell.

He said the Federal exchange was sabotaged by the fact Republican governors chose not to make their own exchanges and that the state exchanges were performing much better. This one isn't even open yet. These people live in "LaLaLa I Can't Hear You!!" Land.

HCA! Beautiful. Already admitting "affordable" was a lie. That didn't take long.

You are confusing the exchange and the website. PDF documents are available to print and sign up for coverage through the exchange. The webiste that would allow you to access the online signup method was supposed to launch October 1st.

So far, no one has signed up for insurance through the exchange, whether online (obviously) or through a printed PDF.
