Story Behind the Curve

As noted above, the wording for this question changed starting in 2021 by asking respondents about the number of times they had in-person, phone or video visits,  We did see an increase in the 1 or more visit response rate since that change which may indicate increased access due to video and phone visits, but more time is needed to monitor this question.
