PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Officials say about 150,000 Oregonians enrolled in individual health care plans will see their plans cancelled by the end of the year because they don’t provide the minimum level of coverage required under the health care law. The State Insurance Division says they should enroll in a plan on the state’s online exchange by Dec. 15 to avoid a break in coverage.
