We share information on what the overwhelming majority of people are doing to save on their health insurance costs.
In the health insurance arena, the new consumer-driven health plans with value-based benefits have allowed agents like us to help our clients drive down their health care costs. In the case of individual plans, the buzzwords are HSA and Preventive Care. HSAs allow you to pay for health and dental expenses with pre-tax $$$ and Preventive Care under PPACA (OBAMACARE) delivers free health benefits. In the case of employee’s plans, lowering costs involve those employees participating in a CDHP to understand the link between their out-of-pocket costs and wellness related activities.. HSAs and CDHPs will continue to gain market share because they are proven to lower health insurance costs and improve the public’s health. Individuals and employers are looking to bend their cost curves through HSAs and CDHPs which will grow another 30% in the next few years. In working with a great number of individuals and employees covered by health insurance plans, they learn what the overwhelming majority of people are doing to save on their health care costs. With all of the time and hard work that went into healthcare reform, clients have been watching premiums rise, benefits shrink and employer contributions dwindle. Since several clients say that they will drop their group health insurance by 2014, the public and employers will turn to consultants to navigate them through the changing health insurance system.
