Online Enrollment Disfunctional

Cover Oregon Continues To Have Trouble
Nearly a week after launching, Oregon's health insurance exchange has received more than 230,000 unique website visitors and 7,300 phone calls.
But the website is still not able to finish enrolling applicants in coverage.
Cover Oregon is an online marketplace where individuals and small businesses can shop for insurance, compare options, and find out whether they qualify for federal subsidies under the federal health care overhaul.
The system has had trouble accurately determining whether people are eligible for subsidies, so officials are waiting until the issues are resolved before they allow people to enroll.
An official said yesterday that Cover Oregon hopes to have the website fully functional by the end of the month.
