More Employers Are Going Solo With CDHPs

MedBen has offered consumer-driven health plans for nearly 15 years… and in that time, we’ve seen it transform from a niche product into a valuable tool for employer cost savings, as well as a way to give employees a greater role in health care spending choices.

And not only are businesses using CDHPs as an alternative or complement to a regular PPO plan, more and more are employing it as their sole source of coverage. According to Business Insurance, a National Business Group on Health survey recently found that over 20% of employers say CDHPs will be the only plan design they offer to employees in 2014.

So what is it about the consumer-driven plan option that appeals to employers? Lower costs are one reason. A Kaiser Family Foundation report released last month found that the average cost of family coverage through CDHPs was nearly $1,500 less per employee than PPO coverage.

The Affordable Care Act also increasingly factors into the decision-making process. Some of the costlier provisions, such as the “Cadillac tax” that will impose a penalty on higher health costs, can be avoided through a greater emphasis on CDHPs.

With options ranging from FSAs and HRAs to the administration of a HDHPs tied to individual HSAs, MedBen can put together a CDHP solution that’s equally effective for self-funded or fully insured employers. And we’ve got the experience, backed by demonstrated employer savings, to ensure that your group’s plan satisfies both your coverage and your financial needs.
