Oregon's health insurance exchange will formally close thanks to a bill Gov. Kate Brown signed to shutter the site.
The closure was expected and had bipartisan backing. Cover Oregon has been using HealthCare.gov to sign up individuals for coverage since the start of the second open-enrollment period. State officials announced last spring that they intended to shut the site following numerous technical woes.
HHS gave Oregon $305 million to create the site, federal records show. Oregon and Oracle Corp., which created the site, are suing each other over the botched rollout. Each is accusing the other of breach of contract.
Oregon's Senate voted 42-14 last month on a bill to kill the site, sending it to Brown to sign.
