"Defined contribution" health plans.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any source of info regarding "defined contribution" health plans? I read occasionaly that companies are adopting such plans, but no one ever says who is nor specifically what it is.

Here's some stuff that may help:

FEHBP is often cited as a 'model' DC healthplan (nice piece on it in 1/18/00 WSJ "Why Health Insurance That Works Still Fails To Catch On Broadly". WSJ seems to have gotten interested in the DC concept due to dust thrown up by Bradley during the primaries; another piece appeared there 2/8/00 on the concept ("Companies Consider Letting Employees Handle Their Health Benefits Decisions").

Info available on FEHBP at GovExec.com , among other places.

Xerox's name gets linked with DC health benefits, tho they've publicly backed off on the concept. eBenX is one dotcom associated with it.

Booz-Allen Hamilton has boldly proclaimed DC healthplans will 'inevitably' remake the health benefits map.

Business & Health magazine's latest issue features an article that's somewhat skeptical of the concept.
