How Do I Sign Up for Obamacare in Oregon?

The easiest way to sign up for “Obamacare” Oregon is by using a licensed Health and Life Insurance agent to answer your questions and advise you on cost, coverage, and your eligibility for any assistance paying for your insurance through the health exchange. After that, your agent will process your application and work with the health exchange and insurance companies to ensure it is processed quickly and correctly so that your coverage starts when and how you want it. All Portland Benefits Group agents are experts on health and life insurance in Oregon and can help you find a plan that meets your needs and then fill out your application for health insurance for you.

Or you can go the more difficult route in locating coverage for yourself directly through the exchange at  

What is Cover Oregon and who replaced them?

The Oregon health exchange originally was Cover Oregon, which was Oregon’s non-functioning health exchange paid for by Americans and programmed by Oracle, a formerly well-respected software company. Blame has been issued by both parties in both directions, however one paid the other $240,000,000 for a system that didn’t work, and that party is Oregon. 

Cover Oregon has since been replaced by the Federally Facilitated Marketplace, or FFM. The FFM is used in 37 states including Oregon and functions relatively well, despite a confusing interface, difficulties correcting data, and often inaccurately displayed copay’s, deductibles, rates, tax credits, network availability, and inclusion of mandatory required parts of health plans like mandatory pediatric dental. It is highly recommended that consumers use an agent to verify the inclusion of their doctors in a plan and that their application is submitted correctly and that their income is estimated accurately in the eyes of the new law.
