ABSTRACT
The article offers information on consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) plan in the U.S. There is considerable concern that those who have selected a CDH plan will decrease their healthcare usage even when the care is appropriate and helpful. It is inferred that the short-term tactic of saving money by limiting essential care will result in a long-term increase in healthcare costs as illnesses go undetected and health risks become emergency care issues.
