Consumer-directed health care (CDHC) refers to health plans in which employees have a personal health account such as a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) from which they pay medical expenses directly. More broadly, CDHC includes defined contribution arrangements under which employees receive a fixed dollar contribution from an employer to choose among various plans. Those opting for plans with lots of extras may have to contribute more of their own money; those choosing bare-bones plans contribute less of their own money.
