Oregon, an early adopter of President Obama’s health reforms, will release new enrollment numbers Tuesday as it attempts to mend an exchange website that’s failed to enroll anyone so far.
Cover Oregon reported 3,470 enrollments at the start of the month, yet all of those were through paper applications.
Acting Executive Director Bruce Goldberg will host a teleconference to provide an update on enrollment and efforts to improve its web capabilities.
“We have made a lot of progress on the website, and key features are now working, but right now, we are focused on enrolling Oregonians through the existing paper process,” Cover Oregon spokeswoman Ariane Holm said late Monday. “Several key parts of the website are now functioning for Cover Oregon staff, community partners and agents, including the ability to allow Cover Oregon to determine eligibility online.”
