CDH Premiums: Are They The New Benchmark?
Audio Conference Event
Thursday, October 12, 2006 at 1:00-2:00PM Eastern (10:00-11:00AM Pacific)

Please join us on Thursday, October 12, 2006 at 1:00pm Eastern! Employers are strongly pushing CDH accounts for one main reason: to lower their premium trend. Insurers are rushing into CDH accounts to drive their premiums lower. But this ultra-low premium trend must keep slowing -- to almost zero -- to avoid a worsening crisis in "affordability" such as average $20,000 family premiums. That leaves a big question: Will HSAs and HRAs be good enough to impact the cost of health insurance across the entire U.S. market? And will these new ultra-low CDH premiums be the new benchmark for the old products?

Employers are strongly pushing CDH accounts for one main reason: to lower their premium trend. Insurers are rushing into CDH accounts to drive their premiums lower. But this ultra-low premium trend must keep slowing -- to almost zero -- to avoid a worsening crisis in "affordability" such as average $20,000 family premiums. That leaves a big question: Will HSAs and HRAs be good enough to impact the cost of health insurance across the entire U.S. market? And will these new ultra-low CDH premiums be the new benchmark for the old products?

• The 'perfect model' for leveraging CDH to slow health plan premium trend
