What High-Deductible Health Plans Can Mean For Employers

High-deductible health plans (HDHPs) have grown rapidly in popularity among employers over the last decade. A tool that can potentially help reduce healthcare costs for both employers and employees, HDHPs must be implemented in a strategic fashion or they can actually lead to a substantial increase in costs. Larry Boress, president and CEO of the Midwest Business Group on Health, recently discussed the topic with industry leaders in Charlotte, NC, during a special event hosted by Carolinas HealthCare System HEALTHWORKS.

In this video, Larry discusses factors employers should consider before implementing an HDHP, and weighs potential benefits and risks for the business and staff. At HEALTHWORKS, we work directly with employers to assess the healthcare needs of employees and their family members. Then we develop customized programs that improve health and reduce healthcare costs for everyone. In many cases, this may include offering an HDHP option for employees.
