Coverage Alternatives for Low and Modest Income Consumers

Bookmark and Share

This chart, prepared by Manatt Health Solutions, allows states to explore different mechanisms to address the cost-sharing cliff in the Exchange and also to promote continuity of coverage and care as consumers transition across Insurance Affordability Programs. The chart provides a side-by-side analysis of coverage alternatives under state and federal consideration including: the Basic Health Program (BHP); the Bridge Plan; Qualified Health Plan (QHP) Premium and Cost-Sharing Support; maintaining existing Medicaid expansions above 133 percent FPL; and Premium Assistance. These options are compared against subsidized QHP coverage available under the ACA. The chart is available at the State Health Reform Assistance Network's website.
