The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) doubled down on CAHPS recently, increasing measure weights for patient experience and access from 2 to 4. As a result, improving CAHPS and member satisfaction has become an urgent priority for health plans nationwide.
However, that goal remains elusive. According to a recent J.D. Power study of commercial health plans, only 36% of members say their health plan acts in their best interest “always” or “most of the time.”
What’s more, given the challenges of the current pandemic, members will likely have higher expectations and may be more critical of their plan this year. Clearly, to stay competitive, plans today need to take a proactive and holistic approach to CAHPS and member satisfaction.
