Help with INSERT query

I'm trying to do a simple insert into a table that collects feedback and tracks who left the feedback.  I have two tables:

Feedback
  FeedbackID int (4)
  Feedback varchar (500)

Users
  UserNameID int (4)
  UserCapitalHealthIdentity varchar (30)

I would like to insert the Feedback and the UserNameID, with the UserNameID pulled from the Users table based on the UserCapitalHealthIdentity.

I'm not great at T-SQL, but thought I would give it a shot:


INSERT INTO Feedback(Feedback, UserName)
VALUES ('this is test feedback',
      (SELECT UserNameID where UserCapitalHealthIdentity = 'ch\JensGerbitz')
      )

Got the following error:

Server: Msg 1046, Level 15, State 1, Line 3
Subqueries are not allowed in this context. Only scalar expressions are allowed.

Any ideas?
Thanks
