Evaluating the Consumer Voices for Coverage program, 2010-12

The Foundation's program, Consumer Voices for Coverage: Strengthening State Advocacy Networks to Expand Health Coverage, was designed to support state-based consumer health advocacy networks to increase their capacity to participate in health care reform efforts with key stakeholders, such as businesses, hospitals, insurers, providers and government officials.This project will provide supplemental support for an evaluation of the Consumer Voices for Coverage (CVC) program. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), with Community Catalyst, originally designed CVC to provide grants in 10 states to: (1) establish state-based networks to advocate improved health care for consumers, (2) elevate the consumer voice in state health reform debates, and (3) achieve policy outcomes that expand health care coverage. The program ultimately made grants in 12 states, and the funding in this grant will support the costs of evaluating those two additional states. RWJF and the grantee designed the evaluation to monitor and evaluate the success of the CVC initiative, as well as to disseminate findings. The evaluation has produced a number of deliverables, but the grantee will use this funding primarily for the evaluation's final report.
