Federal Report Faults Cover Oregon, Oracle

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, OR - A federal government report on Oregon's botched health insurance exchange faults the state's main information technology contractor for not providing key information to Cover Oregon and blames the exchange for lax management.

The review by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says Cover Oregon lacks oversight over the project and has limited visibility into Oracle Corp.'s work.  Thus far, the state has paid Oracle more than $90 million for building the exchange.

The report, dated February 27th, recommends that Cover Oregon "identify a more appropriate" IT vendor.

Cover Oregon spokesman Michael Cox said the report is dated and the exchange has addressed its findings.

Oracle declined to comment.
