Population version: Adult
Learn about the CAHPS Health Literacy Item Sets.
Users of the CAHPS® Health Plan Survey are free to incorporate supplemental items in order to meet the needs of their organizations, local markets, and/or audiences. Some items cover events that occur with low frequency in the general population. You should include them only if your sample design is likely to yield a sufficient number of responses to those questions for statistical analysis and reporting.
