Ore. Exchange Votes To Switch to Federal Site
On Friday, the Covered Oregon board of directors voted to close down its exchange website and instead use the federal exchange site, HealthCare.gov. Oregon's health insurance exchange site is the only state-operated system so plagued by technological glitches that no state residents have been able to enroll in coverage online. CMS will meet with state officials to determine the next steps of the transition.
