PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A spokesperson for Cover Oregon confirmed that roughly 80,000 people enrolled through Cover Oregon will have to re-enroll this fall when they move to the federal exchange.
However, Ariane Holm with Cover Oregon explained that regardless of the technology transition, customers would have had to resubmit their information.
Holm added that anyone who enrolled in coverage through Cover Oregon does not need to take any action right now.
Cover Oregon staff is currently exploring options to make the re-enrollment process easier by having customers’ information already show up in the system, so it doesn’t need to be reentered, Holm said.
The open enrollment period is set to begin Nov. 15.
