Replacing Cover Oregon Site Cheaper Than Fixing It


Kate Black/OPB

A report prepared by a consultant to Cover Oregon shows fixing the Oregon insurance exchange is far more costly than replacing it. The report, obtained by The Oregonian, says it could cost $40 million and take until November 2015 to finish the work on the site started by Oracle. If the state were to replace the system with the federal exchange or another state’s exchange, it could cost a fraction of that price, and take far less time. We’ll hear from Oregonian reporters Nick Budnick and Jeff Manning on the details of the report.
