Consumer Driven Health Plans

A Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) is an excellent option and a very effective tool for monitoring health care costs. A CDHP is a health insurance plan that pays for covered services after you the deductible is met. Most employees save money with a CDHP, but only you can determine what health plan best meets your need.

Don’t forget to take advantage of 100% first dollar preventive care services. It is important to visit a primary care physician for an annual physical which includes screenings for high cholesterol and diabetes, the two most prevalent conditions among our plan members. Preventive services are a smart way to invest in your wellbeing.

The state of Indiana offers two CDHPs – CDHP 1 and CDHP 2.  Both plans cover the same services, the two can be compared by closely examining the premiums, deductibles, and out –of-pocket maximums. 

The premium rates for CDHPs are considerably less expensive than those of a Traditional PPO plan. For CDHP 1, the premiums are the least expensive of all three health plans offered by the state. They start as low as $7.74 biweekly for single coverage and $24.78 for family coverage. For CDHP2, the premiums are the second least expensive of the three health plans offered by the state. They start as low as $46.68 biweekly for single coverage and top out at $134.52 for family coverage.*
