SALEM, Ore. (Legal Newsline) — Oregon Attorney General Ellen F. Rosenblum has announced the state of Oregon, Oracle America Inc. and Oracle reseller Mythics Inc. have agreed to a settlement in the Oregon health care exchange case.
The settlement includes the dismissal with prejudice of all litigation surrounding the exchange.
"Today's settlement agreement ends years of turmoil and taxpayer expense related to the troubled health exchange program I dissolved months ago,” Governor Kate Brown said.
“Since the demise of Cover Oregon, we have helped nearly 98 percent of Oregon children and 94 percent of adults obtain health care coverage. Now let’s focus on getting to 100 percent."
Oracle must provide Oregon with an unlimited license agreement for its software and for technical support for six years at no cost to the state. Additionally, the company will provide the state with discounts on future purchases, as well as fund the Oracle STEM Education Program. This program will give $10 million to STEM programs around Oregon.
“I want to thank the teams from Oregon and Oracle who have worked so hard to find a way to put this unfortunate episode behind us," Rosenblum said. "This settlement outcome is a 'win-win' for the people of Oregon—without the expense and continued impact on our collective psyche."
