Experts expect growth, retailization in 2008
For the second year in a row, CDH experts aren't enthusiastic about the prospects for the new year; nevertheless, their predictions are generally positive. The underlying theme remains consistent: CDHPs are expanding, HSAs will grow in popularity, and more consumers will understand the health/wealth message. Even more certain is that as we move into 2008, healthcare consumerism will become a major trend no longer tethered to CDHPs. Technological advancements and the increasing "retailization" of healthcare will result in more CDHP options, greater customization, and a more insistent demand for transparency.
