The Nation’s Pulse
The TMC Health Policy Institute’s Consumer Health Report provides insight into the public’s perception and attitude of hot-button health policy issues. The annual survey, entering its third year, asks consumers about their health insurance coverage, the quality of care they receive and their views on health care reform, among other topics.
The 2017 survey reached more than 9,000 consumers across 15 states. Additionally, for the first time, this year we fielded a separate survey of physicians that asks them about their views of the health care system.
Survey results will be posted to this page Sept. 12, 2017. The TMC Health Policy Institute will conduct a free, public webinar highlighting key findings Sept. 13, 2017.
