I think the State Library has contacted all of the library directors in the last 2 weeks to find out who the contact person on their staff will be for CoverOregon.  So, it is happening, though not very visible yet.

I wonder if someone from OLA, or the OSL, or.... ?  might want to see if
CoverOregon wants to reach out to Oregon libraries in some way. Although
general ACA info will be very helpful, it would be good to know the unique
characteristics of Oregon's version of the exchange as well. It may be that

Please excuse cross-posting.

We are pleased to announce a new website regarding the Affordable Care Act
with links to state-specific information for the Pacific Northwest.

Here's the newest from our blog, Dragonfly:



Learn more about the Health Insurance Market Place & your new coverage
options with Obamacare

Beginning in October, the general public is expected to come to libraries
and organizations providing health information in great numbers to learn
about the health insurance requirements and options that will be available
for them at the Health Insurance Marketplace, an element of the Affordable
Care Act.

To assist the Pacific Northwest Region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and
Washington) in knowing more about both national and state-specific news,
information and resources to support these information needs, we have
launched an Affordable Care Act website (http://nnlm.gov/pnr/ACA.html) that
is also linked at the top of our Quick Links section of our homepage
(http://nnlm.gov/pnr/). We hope you find this information helpful and
welcome your suggestions!
