Tech Firm Hired To Aid With Cover Oregon Transition

By Jim McCoy Tue 1st July NewsCover Oregon
Oregon has hired a tech firm to help transfer the botched Cover Oregon health insurance exchange to the federal exchange website and finish building the state's Medicaid system. The Oregon Health Authority will pay Deloitte (deh-LOYT) Consulting, LLC up to $18.4 million to be the systems integrator that oversees the transition. The decision to forego a systems integrator on the original Cover Oregon website was widely blamed for contributing to the site's failure to launch. Deloitte will create a website that will redirect Oregonians to the federal site to enroll in private plans and to OHA to enroll in Medicaid. It will also transfer the current Cover Oregon technology for Medicaid to the state's Medicaid system. The transition will be finished by the next open enrollment in November.
