The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has contracted with IMPAQ International and Health Services Advisory Group to develop quality measures for rating Qualified Health Plans operating on the Health Insurance Marketplaces, such as HealthCare.gov. In order for these ratings to provide consumers with timely and comparative information on their choice of insurer, it is vital that they address the information needs of consumers.
We are conducting interviews with individuals that have purchased or are considering purchasing insurance through the Marketplaces for themselves or their loved ones. The information collected during the interviews will help the team determine, from the consumer’s perspective, which measures would be helpful to them when choosing insurance.
Interviews will be no more than one hour in length and a stipend will be provided for the respondent’s time. Interviews will be conducted between May and August of 2016. For more information, please contact Melissa Castora-Binkley by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 813-865-3182.
