The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Health Access Survey monitors access to healthcare among persons with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by collecting information about access to medications and tests, healthcare professional office visits, and health insurance.

By participating in the IBD Health Access Survey, the information you provide will be used to raise awareness about challenges people with IBD experience accessing healthcare. The information will also be used by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and other organizations to improve education and resources for people with IBD and their caregivers.

Completing the survey is voluntary. There is no guarantee of a direct benefit to you from completing the survey. However, the information you provide will help the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation better serve IBD patients in the future. There are minimal risks to participating in the survey.

We encourage you to respond candidly. Many precautions have been taken to protect your information. Your responses to this survey are collected in a confidential manner and will be anonymous in all reports. The findings from this study will be reported in summary form so that the participants cannot be identified.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Please feel free to contact us for answers to specific questions.

Thank you in advance for taking the survey. Your answers can make a real difference in the lives of every person living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in the United States.
