VA Survey of Veteran Enrollees’ Health and Use of Health Care
The Veteran Health Administration’s Office of the Assistant Deputy Under Secretary for Health (ADUSH) for Policy and Planning is conducting the 2016 fielding of the national VA Survey of Veteran Enrollees’ Health and Use of Health Care (Survey of Enrollees). The purpose of the survey is to provide critical and essential information on Veteran utilization of health services. This information supports annual VHA projections of enrollment, utilization, and expenditures, as well as a variety of high level VHA budget and policy related analyses.
In total, the survey will collect information on a random sample of 42,000 Veterans enrolled in the VA system, who choose to participate. Veterans will be asked to complete the survey by web, but those who are unable or unwilling to use this method will be asked to complete the survey by mail or by phone.
Full initiation of the survey will begin on March 31, 2016 and continue through June 30, 2016.
Enrolled Veterans selected for the survey will receive a letter that provides information about the survey and Westat, the contractor conducting the survey on behalf of VA.
Your support in this survey will help ensure that we provide the best care possible for our enrollees, where it is needed, and when it is needed.
Previous survey reports are available on the VHA’s Office of the ADUSH for Policy and Planning website.
