California Consumers Experiences with Managed Care Survey, 1997

In 1997, California's Managed Health Care Improvement Task Force was charged with researching and reporting on the state of managed care in California and formulating recommendations for the future. To successfully meet this mandate, the Task Force recognized that it must not only solicit the views of health policy experts, but also those of all California consumers. The Field Research Corporation conducted this survey of the insured, adult, Californian population in order to gain a more comprehensive view of the managed care experience of the full spectrum of the public.

The data is public use, however researchers who wish to use it must agree to the following:
  1. The data will be used for research or statistical analysis only.
  2. No attempt will be made to ascertain the identity of respondents.
  3. A copy of any publication making use of the data will be sent to the Center for Health and Public Policy Studies, University of California, Berkeley.
