The presentation included information on the ways in which officials in Hawaii, Massachusetts, and Vermont are pursuing 1332 waivers in order to continue these pre-ACA small group market practices, the progress that they have made thus far, and assessment of how their proposals meet the guardrail requirements under Section 1332.
