Thursday, Governor Kitzhaber signed a bill authorizing the launch of the Oregon Health Insurance Exchange.

The exchange is a marketplace where individual Oregonians and small businesses can shop for health insurance, comparing plans on cost and quality.

It will make it easier to purchase insurance and improve value for consumers. With the exchange, small employers will be able to offer a defined contribution to their employees and let them use the exchange to pick the plan that works best for them.
