Notes on Methodology

The wording for this question changed between 2020 and 2021. The 2020 survey asked how many specialists a respondent had "seen", while the 2021 survey asked how many specialists a respondent had "talked to" in the last 6 months. This change allows respondents to incorporate video and phone visits.

Story Behind the Curve

Please see note above about the language change associated with the question in the 2021 survey tool. A high percentage of survey respondents indicate that they access care from 1 or more specialists. The percentage increased in 2021 when the wording of the question more logically incorporated video and telephone visits.
