Customer Service

The Customer Service composite measures members’ perception of the usefulness and quality of customer service they experienced in the last 6/12 months (Medicaid/Commercial), for those who tried to get information or help from their plan’s customer service. Members were asked how often their health plan’s customer service:

  • Gave them the information or help they needed.
  • Treated them with courtesy and respect.

Responses were “Never,” “Sometimes,” “Usually” and “Always.”
