QHP Survey

About the QHP Enrollee Survey

Section 1311(c)(4) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires the HHS Secretary to develop an enrollee satisfaction survey system that assesses consumer experience with QHPs offered through an Exchange. It also requires public display of information by each Marketplace to allow individuals to assess enrollee experience among comparable plans.

CMS developed the QHP Enrollee Survey to assess enrollees’ experiences with QHPs offered through the Exchanges. The survey underwent preliminary testing in 2014 and 2015.  Utilizing data from the 2016 QHP Enrollee Survey, CMS conducted a pilot test of displaying quality ratings on healthcare.gov.
