With the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), you pay a low monthly premium in exchange for a high deductible. One feature that makes the HDHP special is that it's compatible with a Health Savings Account. A Health Savings Account (HSA) is like a savings plan for your healthcare. The combination of the HDHP and an HSA gives you greater flexibility and control over how you pay for and save for health care.


The Basics

  • The HDHP is a preferred provider organization health plan. This means you can choose to see any provider you want, but higher benefits are paid when you go to a network provider. 

  • The HDHP generally covers the same services as GreenState's Traditional PPO Plan, but there are important differences in how the HDHP works that will change how you pay for medical, prescription drug, mental health and substance abuse benefits under this plan. Be sure to read about these important differences before you enroll. 

  • The HDHP is the only medical plan GreenState offers that is compatible with a Health Savings Account (HSA).
