Oregon launches website for residents who need health care



Today in Oregon, Governor John Kitzhaber announces the launch of a new state website for residents who need health insurance.

Coveroregon.com is an online market place, where residents can apply for health insurance, and compare costs of different plans.

Governor Kitzhaber says the website offers consumers and small businesses more choices, competition, value and transparency as they shop for coverage.

Yesterday, Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced a similar site for Washington residents: WAhealthplanfinder.org.
