    High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) generally lower the overall health care costs.  High deductible health plans have lower insurance premiums leading to more affordable monthly and overall costs.  To increase your cost savings and tax advantages, if you are enrolled in a HDHP you are eligible to open a Health Savings Account (HSA).  If you would like to learn more about High Deductible Health Plans, please click on the link below.
