High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)

A plan with a higher deductible than a traditional insurance plan because it is designed to be used with a health savings account (HSA) allowing you to pay for certain medical expenses with money free from federal taxes. While the monthly premium is usually lower for an HDHP, you will pay more health care costs yourself before the insurance company starts to pay its share (your deductible). All of GuideStone’s HDHPs are considered HSA-Qualified High Deductible Health Plans by the IRS and are designed to be combined with an HSA.

Health plans details and vocabulary can be confusing for you and your ministry — which is why GuideStone created two resources designed to help bring clarity.
