QHP Survey

About the Qualified Health Plan (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.
