    My wife and son are now covered by a silver plan, outside the dysfunctional Cover Oregon exchange. (It is an ACA-compliant plan, however.)

    Cost is about $225 per month less than their previous plan, same insurer. But deductibles and OOP are much higher.

    Maybe when they finally get the Cover Oregon backlog cleared, we'll get the Gold plan we actually wanted, through the exchange.

    I feel great relief at having this plan in place, given the problems with Cover Oregon!

    Nice job with the spreadsheet update, brainwrap! I like it better without the trend projection.

    Breaking: broadcast from Oregon Public Broadcasting.  Head of Cover Oregon estimates they have signed up 7,500 under private plans.

    •  Can you provide a link/source for the 7,500 #? (1+ / 0-)

      The Oregon numbers have been all over the map, ranging from as low as 370 to as high as...well, the 7,500 you mentioned, all within the past week.

      I need a solid source before I can post an increase that high, thanks!

      AP, via Oregon Public Broadcasting:  Cover Oregon: Enrollment To Private Health Plans Rises To 7,500

      The director of Cover Oregon said Monday that the state’s insurance exchange has significantly increased enrollment in private health plans to an estimated 7,500 people.

      A week ago, 730 people had enrolled in private plans.

      Cover Oregon’s acting director, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, said many more people will be enrolled before the end of the month. About 13,000 people who have applied to Cover Oregon were enrolled in Medicaid.

      Oregon significantly lags other states because its online enrollment system still doesn’t work, more than two months after it was supposed to launch. The state is using paper applications, and more than 400 workers are working around the clock processing them manually.

      “The paper process is new. We’ve gotten it up rapidly,” Goldberg said. “There’s been a lot of interest in it, a lot of applications.”
