High Deductible Health Plans Increase Dramatically

This article states that high deductible plans have skyrocketed from 8% in 2009 to 19% last year.  If they continue at this rate, about 50% of people will have high deductible plans by 2020.  Oh what a wonderful world it will be.

  1. I don’t know… I’ve been reading articles in the news about how the ACA may actually eliminate a lot of HDHPs and HSAs. This is because most of these plans are designed to be low cost and do not meet the 80/20 requirement. Will be interesting to see how things play out.

  2. Please cite your source — I would like to read those articles!

    1. Thanks for the links — a couple of them seem to be from fairly right wing columnists — whenever an ad for the “John Birch Society” is beside the article, I am a little more skeptical. I also did not find anything specific in the articles saying that the ACA was going to make High-Deductible plans go away. Please be specific about which articles you read this in.

      1. HSAs are he funding source for HDHPs. The two are directly tied to one another.

        I know some of these articles seem right wing, but hopefully his one is more numbers oriented. I’ll try to post more after work http://www.ifebp.org/info request/0160537.pdf

  3. OK, now I see what you mean. The link, btw, for those following along:
