Acting Executive Director, Dr. Bruce Goldberg says they are moving forward processing thousands of paper applications to get people enrolled by the first of the year.
They have applications for 65-thousand people they are trying to plow through, to get people coverage by January first.
Dr. Goldberg says they continue to develop code and test it on the Cover Oregon website, but it's still not functioning at the level it has to.
"This is not what I think anyone wanted it to be. But it's where we are at. And we're going to work thorugh it to get everyone the coverage they need."
Dr. Goldberg recommends people concerned they won't have coverage in January and currenlty have it, they should continue that policy through January. He says if you don't have coverage, you can apply directly with carriers and then reapply for subsidies once the Cover Oregon website is up and running.
