Oregon is outpacing other states, with nearly 43,000 signups on healthcare.gov, out of 2.3 million across the country. But to match last year, Oregon needs to double its enrollment by Dec. 15, while the nation must triple its own.
Most consumers will want to pick a plan that aligns with their physician rather than focus on cost. People purchasing subsidized health insurance on healthcare.gov will not see significant increases in cost, but Obamacare is increasingly gouging middle-class consumers who don’t qualify.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that over 2.1 million people selected plans using the HealthCare.gov platform since Open Enrollment began on November 1, including 40,290 in Oregon.
