SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Gov. John Kitzhaber plans to release an independent review of what went wrong with Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange.

Kitzhaber’s office has scheduled a press conference for Thursday to disclose the findings of the review and “steps he is taking to ensure that Cover Oregon delivers on its promise for Oregonians who need health coverage.”

The governor’s office says the review by First Data Government Solutions is based on interviews with 67 people and the review of more than 3,200 documents.

Kitzhaber ordered the review in January at a cost of $228,000. It’s supposed to answer seven questions aimed at pinpointing why Cover Oregon’s online enrollment system wasn’t ready to launch on schedule in October.

Oregon is the only state where the public still can’t sign up for health insurance online in one sitting
