Research Shows Consumer-Directed Health Plans Encourage Preventive Care
Date:10/27/2008

se of preventive care, the Institute's analysis found CDHP members actually utilized preventive services at a higher rate than their non-CDHP counterparts. This difference was more pronounced in males than females. Male CDHP members showed 8.8 percent higher preventive care utilization than their counterparts enrolled in other plan types, a finding that is even more significant considering the fact that on average, men are 25% less likely than women to have seen a doctor in the past year.(1)
