Overview: In the past, the Office of Personnel Management contracted with a vendor to administer the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey to a sample of both active Federal employees and retirees. CAHPS surveys ask consumers and patients to report on and evaluate their experiences with their health care. Since the CAHPS survey instrument is designed for the active population, it will no longer be administered to retirees. However, annuitant feedback about their health plan experience is an essential part of successful benefit administration for the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program. As a result, the Federal Annuitant Benefits Survey is designed to replicate CAHPS questions in order to assess annuitant satisfaction with their health plan’s benefits and services. It will inform the Office of Personnel Management’s Healthcare and Insurance contracting officers regarding plan performance.
