  • Most adults gave high ratings of their health care, with more than 30 percent rating their health care a 9 or 10, where 10 is the best care possible.
  • Ratings of health care were similar across adults with and without health problems, but higher-income adults were more likely than low-income adults, and white, non-Hispanic adults were more likely than adults of other racial/ethnic backgrounds to give high ratings.
  • Most adults named either care providers or care setting as the most important factor in rating their health care; only one in five adults said the care they received was the most important.
