Oracle sues Oregon over health insurance exchange

By From page A10 | August 09, 2014

SALEM, Ore. — Oracle Corp. is suing Oregon in a continuing fiasco over the state’s health insurance exchange, saying Oregon is continuing to use the technology company’s software despite $23 million in disputed bills.

Oracle’s breach-of-contract lawsuit against Cover Oregon was filed Friday in federal court in Portland. It alleges that state officials repeatedly promised to pay the company but have not done so.

The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Oregon’s health insurance enrollment website was never launched to the general public. State officials have blamed Oracle, but the company says the state’s bad management is responsible.

Gov. John Kitzhaber has called for the state to sue Oracle and recover some of the millions it already paid to the company, based in Redwood City.
