Consumer-Driven Health Plans: A Cost and Utilization Analysis

Source: Amanda Frost, Kevin Kennedy, Health Care Cost Institute, Issue Brief #12, September 2016

From the abstract:
This data brief examines the health care use and spending from 2010-2014 for people who are enrolled in consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs), and compares these trends to non-CDHP enrollees. Findings indicate that although fewer total dollars were spent on health care for CDHP enrollees, they had higher per capita out-of-pocket spending on deductibles, copays, and coinsurance.
