    What's happening here in Oregon makes me want to scream.  I think Oracle should have to pay back every damned dime they've been paid for their POS "system."

    Can you call yourself a real liberal if you aren't reading driftglass?

      through the paper-based enrollment pipeline.

      So, you beat the deadline for Jan 1 coverage?  Sorry, not good enough! (OPB, Cover Oregon May Leave Some Uncovered Jan. 1)

      The leader of Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange says thousands of Oregonians who sent in their applications by the deadline may have to go elsewhere for temporary coverage — despite the state’s promises. ...

      Dr. Bruce Goldberg, acting head of Cover Oregon, said Tuesday that only 28,000 of the 65,000 people who sent in completed paper applications by a Dec. 4 deadline have had their applications processed.

      Those 28,000 have already received their enrollment packets or their packets have been mailed. Once they get the packets, they must pick an insurance plan and send their choice back to the state by Dec. 15 to enroll.

      The applications of about 37,000 Oregonians have not yet been processed. About half of those people will likely be eligible for Medicaid and will be automatically enrolled, Goldberg said. He said some of the other half, who would qualify for private insurance through the exchange, may be without coverage for a month — even though they sent their applications in by the deadline.

      I can't help it. I love the state of Texas. It's a harmless perversion. - Molly Ivins
