Busted state Obamacare websites haven't caught up to Healthcare.gov
Last fall, when healthcare.gov was all but useless for two months, a handful of states that decided to build their own Obamacare enrollment websites grappled with their own problems. Home-grown exchanges in such places as Kentucky and California worked relatively smoothly, but in other states, including Oregon and Maryland, the insurance portals looked as bad as healthcare.gov, or worse. The federal site has been in better shape since its Dec. 1 reboot. The same can't be said for some of the states trying to repair their own malfunctioning sites. Cover Oregon has resorted to an analog solution, taking applications offline with paper applications.
