Discussing Financial Burdens of Consumer-Directed Health Plans With Dr Neeraj Sood

Laura Joszt

With the cost of healthcare rising, consumers are being asked to shoulder more of the financial burden and make more cost-conscious decisions regarding their healthcare. One method to do this is through the use of consumer-directed health plans, which are high-deductible health plans coupled with a health savings account or a health reimbursement arrangement. Neeraj Sood, PhD, co-authored a paper in the April issue of The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®) evaluating the impact of enrollment in consumer-directed health plans on financial burden associated with healthcare utilization.
