In their efforts to control health care costs, 45% of organizations have consumer-driven health (CDH) plans, up from 37% in 2007. Among them, 16% offer CDH programs to employees as their only option for a health plan, says a survey by the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists.

Advice:
Almost 60% of employers believe workers who do not enroll in CDH plans fear high out-of-pocket costs. Encourage participation in yours by educating employees about the option. Organizations with the highest enrollments have comprehensive communications strategies.
