How Do High-Deductible Health Plans Impact Spending?
Show Notes

In our latest episode, Dr. Jay and J.R. talk about high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and how these plans impact healthcare in the U.S. — particularly among people who have private or commercial health insurance.

Our hosts take a look at some recent research regarding whether HDHPs are working as anticipated (lowering healthcare costs while making people more engaged in their overall care). While these plans have been shown to decrease the number of "low-value" services members receive, they also had some unintended consequences as it relates to preventive care.
