What’s a consumer-driven health plan (CDHP)?
A consumer-driven health plan (CDHP) is a medical plan that typically has a higher deductible and lower monthly premiums. “Consumer-driven” means you manage more of your health care dollars.
A CDHP may be offered with a health savings account (HSA), flexible spending arrangement (FSA) or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). With these accounts qualified medical expenses may be reimbursed on a tax-free or tax-deductible basis.
