Continuation of Research on Consumer Directed Health Plans

This technical report was produced for the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services.  The report extends and refines prior research on consumer directed health plans by incorporating the effect of prior health status on health plan choice – a necessary step for predicting health plan enrollment more accurately.  In addition, the methodology for estimating the tax cost of various subsidy proposals was refined to include an offsetting reduction in tax subsidies for individuals and families who drop subsidized employer-sponsored health insurance.
