Foster City, CA – November 14, 2019 – The hope with high deductible health plans (HDHPs) is that they will reduce health care costs for both employers and employees. Insure.com, a one-stop destination for unbiased, expert advice on health, life and home insurance, just released survey results showing that HDHPs haven’t made much progress lowering costs, at least for consumers.
“It is concerning that high out-of-pocket costs are causing some people to delay care,” observes Les Masterson, managing editor for Insure.com. “More than half of our survey respondents, a full 56%, report delaying care due to HDHP costs. That could have health and cost effects in the long run.”
