Increased Member Satisfaction Revealed by CAHPS Survey
Last update: December 3, 2020
The annual Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) survey assesses member satisfaction with the health plan, their primary care provider (PCP), the specialist they visit most often and other components of the health care delivery system.
Overall, members remain satisfied with their service and care. Adult members reported increased satisfaction with their PCP and the overall rating of health care. Members gave higher marks over last year for areas such as getting care quickly and customer service.
