SALEM – Gov. John Kitzhaber announced Thursday that Cover Oregon director Bruce Goldberg resigned. Kitzhaber also said he was "angry and disappointed" over the insurance exchange debacle.
“I am taking a number of steps to put Cover Oregon on a path to help deliver on a promise to Oregonians that I have been pursuing now for 25 years: access to quality and affordable health care,” said Kitzhaber in a press release put out in conjunction with Thursday’s briefing.
The news comes after Kitzhaber released an independent assessment of the failed exchange.
“Oregonians deserve accountability for the public investment made in this technology,” he said.
