J.D. Power: To Buoy Member Satisfaction, Insurers Must Be ‘Active Health Partners’

  • Jun 09, 2023

    Customer satisfaction with commercial health plans declined year over year, according to J.D. Power’s 2023 Commercial Member Health Plan study. The data analytics firm noted that overall satisfaction decreased by 13 points (on a 1,000-point scale), while there were declines in satisfaction with customer service by 33 points, coverage and benefits by 20 points, provider choice by 16 points, and information and communication by 16 points.

    During the previous five years, overall satisfaction increased by 17 points, although there was no change from 2021 to 2022.

    Christopher Lis, Ph.D., who is J.D. Power’s managing director of global health care intelligence, tells AIS Health, a division of MMIT, that plans can improve their members’ satisfaction in a few ways. He notes that plans can become “an active health partner” and provide timely and transparent information to beneficiaries and provide individualized support and service.
