Exit Survey »

This survey is for the parents and caregivers of children with disabilities (age birth through 20) enrolled in Medicaid. Our goal is to collect data on how well the Medicaid system has educated parents and caregivers on The services and supports available to these children. 

Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. Your information will be coded and will remain confidential.

Thank you very much for your time.
