Address high deductibles

Americans who do have insurance are finding that more and more of their health care expenses are coming out of pocket. Half of the nation’s large employers are now offering “consumer-directed” high-deductible plans. O’Malley will encourage these plans to truly serve consumers by covering, with no deductible or other outof-pocket cost, critical services—including certain drugs—that keep people healthy and reduce overall costs. O’Malley will also explore alternative paths to boost medical savings and assist with paying for care, even while the deductible applies.
