Over 13,000 are now enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan, bringing total enrollment to just over 20,500 Oregonians. Doctor Bruce Goldberg says they’ve hired a crew to oversee the work of code writers from Oracle. Hundreds of others have been hired and are now working 24-7 to process claims.
Goldberg expects that over 110,000 will have health coverage under Cover Oregon by January 1st. In the meantime, Oracle is being charged for the man hours and $18-20 million is being withheld by the state until the website is up and running.
