              SUPPLEMENTAL HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

              SUPPLEMENTAL HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

INTRODUCTION

Boise Cascade Office Products Corporation (the "Company") has adopted a
Supplemental Health Care Plan for Executive Officers (the "Plan") in addition
to the Company's Preferred Provider Network Medical Plan, Dental Plan, Vision
Plan, and Prescription Drug Plan.  While you share in the cost of your medical
care by paying a monthly contribution, a deductible, and a percentage of the
remaining expenses, the combination of the plans pays most of the major charges
for covered health care expenses for you and your dependents.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE

As an executive officer of the Company who also serves as an executive officer
of Boise Cascade Corporation, you are automatically eligible for coverage under
the Plan.  Your dependents' coverage under the Plan will become effective on
the same date that your own coverage begins.

Your dependents who are eligible for coverage under this Plan include your
spouse plus any unmarried children under age 23, if they do not regularly work
full-time and are dependent on you for support.  Under certain circumstances, a
child with disabilities may be covered beyond age 23.

HOW BENEFITS BECOME PAYABLE

Medical benefits become payable under this Plan after benefits for covered
charges under the Preferred Provider Network Medical Plan have been applied to
medical expenses incurred by you or your covered dependent.  The Plan will pay
100% of the remaining charges for the treatment, services, and supplies listed
under "What the Plan Covers." Amounts applied to the deductible and copayments
under the Preferred Provider Network Medical Plan are not covered under this
Plan.

Dental and vision benefits become payable under this Plan after benefits for
scheduled amounts covered under the Dental Plan or the Vision Plan have been
applied to dental or vision expenses incurred by you or your covered dependent.
The Plan will pay 100% of the remaining charges for the services and supplies
shown under "What the Plan Covers."

The deductible and copayment amounts under the Prescription Drug Plan are not
covered under this Plan.

WHAT THE PLAN COVERS

Medical expenses incurred will be reduced by the amount considered as covered
charges under the Preferred Provider Network Medical Plan.  The Plan will pay
100% of the remaining charges for the following medical expenses:

- -    Hospital room and board charges.
- -    Hospital intensive care (ICU) and cardiac care unit (CCU) charges.
- -    Hospital services and supplies (inpatient or outpatient).

     equipment and appliances.

     or mechanical means only.

     administration.

The Plan will also pay 100% of the remaining charges for vision exams,

benefits under the Dental Plan, the Vision Plan, or the Preferred Provider
Network Medical Plan, have been applied.
