|Do "Consumer-Directed" Health Plans Bend the Cost Curve Over Time?|
“Consumer-Directed” Health Plans (CDHPs) combine high deductibles with personal medical accounts and are intended to reduce health care spending through greater patient cost sharing. Prior research shows that CDHPs reduce spending in the first year. However, there is little research on the impact of CDHPs over the longer term.

|Supreme Court Blocks Medicaid Lawsuits|
Health care providers can't sue states when feel they're being shortchanged by Medicaid cuts, the Supreme Court said Tuesday. Federal law places certain requirements on states that participate in Medicaid, and some providers argued that states are violating those requirements by cutting their Medicaid budgets too deeply.
