Consumer driven or consumer directed health care (CDHC) – Health insurance programs and plans that are intended to make you more informed about your health. Under these plans, you have more control over your health care dollars and may use health care services more efficiently, so these plans tend to be more affordable. These medical plans also offer reduced premiums in exchange for higher deductibles. Plus, they offer incentives and tools to manage health care decisions and costs, including web tools to make decisions about health care plan choices, education information about health care, preventive coverage at little or no cost, disease management programs and the use of care coaches. Health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) are common examples of CDHC plans.
