High Deductible Health Plans

And HDHP is defined as a health plan with:

  • The annual out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles, copayments and other amounts, but not premiums) do not exceed $6,250 for self-only coverage or $12,500 for family coverage.

Please not that there are two types of deductibles:

  • An aggregate deductible requires that the entire family deductible must be met before any o9ne person in the family may receive plan benefits.
  • An embedded deductible allows each person with family coverage to receive full benefits after he/she reaches a specified deductible. The minimum embedded deductible is $2,500 in 2013, the same as the minimum family deductible.
