Consumer Health Spreads

More and more employers offer consumer-driven health plans.

As healthcare costs continue their ascent, more companies are adopting consumer-directed health plans (CDHP).

Only 27% of companies will not offer a consumer-directed plan in 2012, down from 39% in 2011, according to a survey of 83 large companies with a total of 4 million employees. The survey, conducted by the National Business Group on Health, shows 17% of the companies will offer only a CDHP to employees next year, vs. 20% in 2011, while 56% will include a consumer-driven plan as one option, up from 41% this year.
