Provider Satisfaction Survey

Thank you for partnering with Sunflower Health Plan to provide quality healthcare for our members.

As your partner, we want to ensure that your experience with us is positive and rewarding. You are essential to providing the highest quality healthcare possible for our members, and your satisfaction is important to us.

We assess your experience with the health plan through an annual Provider Satisfaction Survey. Survey questions include your feedback around finance, utilization and quality management, network coordination of care, pharmacy, health plan call center, provider relations, and overall satisfaction. We strive for providers to be Completely Satisfied and consider our plan Well Above Average. If we are not meeting your expectations and needs, please let us know by contacting Provider Relations.

Last year, all survey respondents who submitted their responses timely were entered into a drawing to win a $400 VISA gift card as a thank you for their time in completing the survey. We are excited to announce the winner of the 2022 Provider Satisfaction Survey drawing!
