The purpose of this paper is to provide a framework to assess the BHP option from the vantage point of consumers, the Exchange, and the state. The paper explores the advantages and risks associated with the BHP for states, as well as potential strategies to manage or reduce those risks. Finally, the paper identifies areas where federal guidance is needed to fully assess the program’s impact and suggests how such guidance could make the BHP more or less desirable.
