HEALTH PLANS/POLICY: Plans challenge Commonwealth Fund position on CDHPs

You’ll recall that the Commonwealth Fund has been featured on THCB as a bastion of opposition to the idea that CDHPs will lead to nirvana, and that people who join them may skip out on needed services. Well now a couple of health plans are disputing this saying that behavior changes are being seen amongst those who sign up for CDHPs. There isn’t much more to say other than this will play out in the coming years and we’ll see who’s right. However, there’s no inherent contradiction in saying that people who choose CDHPs will use more preventative services while still being healthier than those who stay in traditional plans.

Anyway, here’s the article, which gives you a good intro to the subject if you haven’t read THCB’s earlier reports (like this one).
