New Study Analyzes CDHP Enrollment

Increase in consumer driven health plans reported in 2007

A recent study conducted by the American Association of Preferred Provider Organizations (AAPPO) shows that participation in consumer driven health plans (CDHP) have increased.  In 2007, enrollment in a CDHP grew 25 percent, to 12.5 million from 10 million in 2006. The majority of those CDHPs were based on a preferred provider organization (PPO) network, which is an increase of 2 percent from 2006.

AAPPO also notes that “While large employers were the first to embrace the CDHP model, small employers are now helping to fuel the growth of CDHPs, with 7 percent of employers with fewer than 500 employees offering a CDHP in 2007 as compared to 5 percent in 2006”
