+ - Oregon switching from own failing healthcare exchange solution to Healthcare.gov->

Submitted by aojensen
aojensen (1503269) writes "A while ago we brought a story (http://m.slashdot.org/story/200897) about how Oregon is having trouble getting it's troubled online healthcare exchange ready for prime time — the reasons beating difficulties managing the expensive vendors and consultants delivering the solution. Now it seems, according to The Verge (http://feedly.com/k/1rvB8Np), they have ditched their own solution for Healthcare.gov, the US federal government solution, which became famous because of its own odd technology platform and notable performance issues ( http://m.slashdot.org/story/19...): "Oregon is giving up on its state-run online health exchange and switching over to the federal website, making it the first state to make the jump, according to the Associated Press. Oregon's health exchange, known as Cover Oregon, has reportedly been plagued with issues and hasn't even been able to fully process new applications online â" those enrolling have apparently still had to fill out paper forms as well. Fixing Cover Oregon reportedly would have cost a staggering $78 million, while transitioning over to Healthcare.gov will only cost between $4 million and $6 million." In exchange for the adopting the federal solution, however, Oregon will have to give up some control of its own policies."
