7-9 jbo cover oregonPORTLAND, Ore. — The man who led Oregon’s health insurance exchange is calling it quits.

Rocky King has been on medical leave from Cover Oregon since December 2nd. His resignation is effective at the end of his leave on March 5th. The board says they’re now looking for a permanent director.

King came under fire when the online enrollment system failed to go live in October. The state’s online exchange still hasn’t launched and Oregon has had to rely exclusively on paper applications.
