New Minimum Deductible Will Apply to Certain CDHPs in 2020
Effective January 1, 2020, members in the Episcopal Church Medical Trust’s Consumer-Directed Health Plan 20 (“CDHP-20”) offerings will see a $100 increase in their annual individual network deductible to $2,800. The family network deductible will remain at $5,450.
This change will apply to members who are enrolled in the following plans, with either single or family coverage:
- Anthem BCBS CDHP-20
- Cigna CDHP-20
- Kaiser CDHP-20
The change results from an IRS increase in the 2020 minimum deductible for high deductible health plans. The change does not apply to members who are enrolled in the Medical Trust’s other CDHPs, which are the Anthem and Cigna CDHP-15 and CDHP-40 plans.
Watch our 2020 CDHP_HSA Member Education Webinar for more information.
