Oregon health enrollments in middle of the pack
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon places in the middle of the pack among states that built their own exchanges when it comes to signing up for private health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
An analysis of new government figures by The Associated Press shows that Oregon is seventh when it comes to enrollments in private coverage as a percent of states' populations. Thirteen other states and the District of Columbia have their own exchanges.
Cover Oregon enrolled 33,808 Oregonians in private insurance during the first four months of the exchange. The state did not provide a breakdown by age.
Vermont, followed by California, has enrolled the most people as compared to their total populations. Massachusetts enrolled the fewest.
The data also shows 73% of Oregonians who selected a marketplace plan received financial assistance.
