Description: The 2014-2015 Nationwide Adult Medicaid Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (NAM CAHPS) survey contains national and state-level estimates of the health care experiences of non-institutionalized adults (ages 18+) who were enrolled in Medicaid between October 2013 and December 2013. The survey used a modified version of the Adult CAHPS® Medicaid 5.0H survey and included supplemental questions to assess potential access barriers more broadly and capture data on race, ethnicity, sex, primary language, and disability status per Section 4302 of the Affordable Care Act. The sample population was stratified into four subgroups:

  • Dually-eligible individuals
  • Individuals with a disability (non-duals)
  • Medicaid managed care (non-duals, non-disabled)
  • Fee-for-service (traditional) Medicaid (non-duals, non-disabled)

The survey was conducted by CMS in four waves starting in the fall of 2014 and was based on a nationwide sample of roughly 29,000 adult Medicaid enrollees from each of the 46 participating states and the District of Columbia. This file does not contain any personally identifiable information (PII).  The survey data can be used to produce measures of:

  • Demographic and health characteristics
  • Access to care
  • Barriers to care
  • Global ratings of care
