An Oregon Obamacare exchange failure shifted nearly 4,000 applicants for a state program that provides pregnancy services to illegal immigrants into the state’s expanded Medicaid program, the Oregonian reports.
The Oregon Health Plan serves as the state’s version of Medicaid for low-income residents. Two-thirds of the Obamacare exchange’s enrollments have been for the expanded Medicaid program, adding over 70,000 Oregonians to the plan.
"No Kidding" !!!!
“It never works perfectly the first time out,” Oregon Health Authority manager Kathleen Paul said Friday. “We were just getting people into the services.”
State officials say they discovered the problem several weeks ago and are correcting it.
So they're fixing it.
I no way do I support the ACA, but I think (as surprising as it may seem) that criticizing these "mistakes" are not very productive.
All the mistakes, errors and incompetence is very costly to the taxpayers.
