What do consumer-driven health plans need to be successful?

Successful consumer-driven health plans must satisfy two overarching objectives:
  1. Be effective for the healthiest AND the most ill.
  2. Appeal to those who want to make all health decisions AND those who want to make none.8

Outlook for CDHPs

With health care costs on the rise, CDHPs are likely to give employers a cost-effective solution while promoting recommended preventive services and the use of cost and quality tools.9

Research shows that CDHPs can be money-saving for employers, but it is important to provide accurate and sufficient tools to help employees make better health care decisions and to ensure that health care dollars are well spent.4
