Ore­gon op­ted to run its own im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act but can’t en­roll a single con­sumer in Obama­care, Re­u­ters re­ports.

The state’s failed on­line ex­change site presents a far more dire situ­ation than the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment’s troubled Health­Care.gov; Ore­gon of­fi­cials have been in­struct­ing con­sumers to fill out a 19-page, pa­per ap­plic­a­tion in­stead.

Nearly 25,000 in­di­vidu­als have com­pleted pa­per ap­plic­a­tions but none have of­fi­cially en­rolled for cov­er­age. The state has hired roughly 400 tem­por­ary work­ers to speed up the pro­cess.
