Cover Oregon Struggles
In this Nov. 1, 2013 file photo, Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber discusses problems with the website for Cover Oregon, the state's health insurance exchange, during a news conference in Portland, Ore. More than a month after Cover Oregon was supposed to launch, reality is lagging far behind Gov. Kitzhaber’s ideals. The online system still doesn’t work, and the exchange has yet to enroll a single person in health insurance. Interviews with state officials and a review of public records suggests Cover Oregon officials bit off more than they could chew and clung stubbornly to their ambitious vision even when their risk management consultants raised alarms.
