Why? ✤ 88% Say the information available is complex and confusing ✤ 84% Say the available information conflicts ✤ 83% Say it’s difficult to figure out which plan is the best fit for them *Statistics Compliments of Aetna Survey 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. *Statistics Compliments of Aetna Survey 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) *Statistics Compliments of Aetna Survey 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.
