Djalma Silva Guimarães Júnior, Denise Dumke de Medeiros


New standards for supplementary health services have been introduced in Brazil by the regulatory agent in order to raise the level of user satisfaction. In this context, understanding the critical factors for user satisfaction can help a supplemental healthcare enterprise to add value to its services, expand its customer base, and become more competitive.
