A Survey of Basic Resource Needs in KP Members Receiving Subsidized Insurance Coverage: How do they think Kaiser Permanente should support their needs?
The KP-based Social Needs Network for Evaluation and Translation (SONNET) designed and conducted a survey in 2018-19 with support from KP National Community Health. SONNET randomly selected over 1,000 members with a subsidy from the Southern California region. The SONNET team reported in June 2019 on the survey design, sampling frame and the basic resource needs of this segment of KP members. In summary, members had trouble paying for medical needs, food, housing and utilities.
