The 2016 Kaiser Family Foundation / HRET Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Benefits indicates that the percentage of covered workers enrolled in an HSA or HRA account-based HDHP has risen from 4% in 2006 to 29% a decade later in 2016. In fact, the portion with consumer driven plans rose fifteen percentage points since the dawn of the ACA (from 13% in 2010 to 29% in 2016).


While consumer driven health plans and consumerism initiatives have grown substantially since tax advantaged HRAs were introduced in 2002, and HSAs/Qualified HDHPs in 2004; it is anticipated that they will become an even greater focal point of health policy going forward, with the Trump Administration and Republican Congress taking charge of the healthcare policy agenda in 2017.


Stakeholders positioning themselves in 2017 and beyond are well served to re-familiarize themselves with the components. issues, trends, challenges, opportunities and current data related to consumer driven health plans, including HSAs, HRAs, HDHPs, other related products, technology and consumerism initiatives.


Please join us Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 1 PM Eastern as prominent national consumerism experts Eric Remjeske, President and Co-Founder of Devenir, and John Young, Chief Executive Officer of Consumer Driven, LLC provide a state of the art examination of the consumer driven landscape going forward, in the HealthcareWebSummit event: Consumer Driven Care 2017 and Beyond - Data, Policy, Issues, Trends, and More.
