On the Oregon ObamaTrail

Well, some good news for Beaver State residents who may be shopping for health insurance this fall. Unlike so many other states, carriers seem to be supportive of Oregon's Exchange:

"The Oregon Insurance Division has posted individual and small-group rate proposals for 2014 ... rate proposals from a total of 16 conventional carriers and two new CO-OP plans for the exchange and non-exchange markets."

Oregon is one of the minority of states that has chosen to implement its own Exchange, rather than rely on Ms Shecantbeserious and her minions to do so on its behalf. Noticeably absent from the list of participating carriers are Blue Cross and United Healthcare, two rather large elephants in the room. They've chosen to cast their lot with the non-Exchange market, instead.

Interesting developments.
