                Difficulty CHOOSING
                   Health Coverage

✤   Choosing health care benefits has been rated the second most difficult
    major life decision Americans face. Why?

                    Difficulty USING
                    Health Coverage
✤   It seems that individuals not only have trouble deciding on a health
    insurance plan, but also how to manage it once they have one.

✤   41% of Americans have missed a dose of their prescription, put off a
    necessary medical procedure, or failed to take their medication all
    together.

✤   Those with chronic conditions or poor health make up the greatest
    percentage.

                       Some Solutions


✤   In order to encourage individuals to understand their health insurance
    and manage their plan more efficiently, many employers have opted
    for Consumer-driven health plans over HMO’s.

✤   58% of employers, in 2011, offered CDHPs (41% in 2010)

✤   38% of employers, in 2011, offered HMOs (41% in 2010)

                           The Hope


✤   The hope is that by taking the focus of health care off of merely
    taking care of the sick and instead using it as a means to encourage
    individuals to actively manage their own health, that more Americans
    will seek the coverage they need and understand more readily how to
    manage it well.
