A consumer-directed health plan (a.k.a. “consumer-driven” or “consumer choice”) is designed to give you more control. As part of the plan, you setup a health savings account (HSA) that can be used to cover medical expenses or help pay for a high deductible. This type of healthcare is getting the spotlight as congress aims to repeal and replace the ACA with a larger focus on health savings accounts and quality healthcare.

Members of managed care health plans generally enjoy more benefits like lower out-of-pocket costs. However, you can only receive treatment from physicians that participate in the managed care network. Typical managed care plans include health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPO), and point-of service (POS) plans.
