FBI Expands Investigation Into Failed Oregon Healthcare Exchange

Cover Oregon investigation continues, expands.
(cover oregon)

A number of subpoenas have been issued in connection with the tanked $250-million-dollar project.

After three years and all that money, Cover Oregon, the state’s failed healthcare exchange, is under close criminal scrutiny by the FBI.

According to multiple sources, the exchange failed to successfully register a single customer online.  According to OregonLive.com:

‘The investigation, led by federal prosecutors and the FBI, is seeking documents, memos, and emails between the two state entities that oversaw the botched health exchange with U.S. authorities in charge of dispensing federal money for the project.

Oregon has spent $250 million and three years on an ambitious IT project that failed to produce a fully functional exchange. Instead, what was produced was bug-ridden and largely unfinished, documents show.” (bold lettering added for emphasis).

Oregon’s website has turned into the “poster-child” of the failure of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) by critics.   It has also turned into a huge political liability for Gov. Kitzhaber.   The escalation from an inquiry to a full-blown (and possibly criminal) investigation has seriously hurt his credibility.

A recent poll done in may showed about half of the registered Oregon voters who were talked to said he should NOT be re-elected.
