Methods

The 2014 survey was sent to a random sample of 44,000 adult health plan members aged 20 and over beginning in mid-April 2014. Sample selection was stratified by gender by five age groups (20-44, 45-64, 65-74, 75-79, 80+) by 19 medical center service populations (MCSPs). We used resultant oversampling of seniors and smaller MCSPs.

The survey questionnaire could be completed in print or online. The survey sample was sent up to three survey mailings over a five-month period. We also provided the URL to complete the survey online. In addition, the 66 percent of target members who had a registered email address with the kp.org website and had not opted out of being contacted for surveys by email were sent an email containing links to the online survey.

Members whose preferred spoken or written language was designated as a language other than English were excluded from the sampling process.

The overall survey response rate for the 2014 Member Health Survey will be posted after we release all the reports.
