In a recent study, World At Work (think tank for employee benefits research), found that consumer-centric health care (aka Consumerism, CDHC, the list goes on) is indeed becoming more prevalent in health plans.
According to WaW, some two thirds of the employers surveyed claim that, over the past couple of years, workers are taking the time to become more familiar with what's covered. A bit less than half are beginning to encourage their employees to become more informed in their health care and decisions which could affect it.
Good news, methinks.
