3.) Consumer-Driven Health Plans: Successful Implementations Methodologies Based on the Strategies of Early Adopters

When a health plan transitions to CDHP from a traditional managed care delivery model, staff, management and operational disciplines across the enterprise must respond rapidly to marketplace demands and provide superior consumer service from the outset. The truly focused health plan gains an advantage by quickly capitalizing on its CDHP initiative to achieve strategic marketplace goals. When the entire organization endorses the initiative and collaborates effectively, the health plan can address all affected downstream processes and maximize benefits.

4.) BCBSA Survey Shows CDHP Enrollees Are Taking More Control Of Their Healthcare

Participants enrolled in consumer-directed health plans (CDHPs) are more engaged in wellness programs and are more likely to plan and save for healthcare expenses than those in traditional healthcare coverage, according to new survey released by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA).

The BCBSA 2007 CDHP Member Experience Survey found that consumers eligible for health savings accounts (HSAs) were 17 percent more likely to participate in an exercise program than those enrolled in non-CDHP products.
