Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many people in Ohio do not have access to quality, affordable health care. While for many cost is a tremendous barrier to accessing health care, there are many other challenges faced by people in Ohio. Administrative barriers keep many from accessing the coverage they need to stay healthy. Problems in accessing health care also include limited transportation, provider access and accommodation (e.g. paid sick leave).

Improve and Protect Medicaid

Medicaid is a critical source of health care coverage for millions of people in Ohio. UHCAN Ohio is committed to assuring that Medicaid works for all who need it. We support improving the quality of care and access to care. We oppose efforts to limit coverage and eligibility, as well as imposition of barriers and red-tape.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

UHCAN Ohio wants to see a system where everyone has access to affordable, quality health care. We want to see policy changes across the state and in institutions that help everyone gain that access. This means changes to state laws but also the policies of insurers, hospitals, physicians, dentists and others.

Medicaid: Maintain the eligibility and coverage for Medicaid in Ohio
• Defeat the 1115 Medicaid waiver imposing additional bureaucratic requirements
• Defeat Congressional attempts to undermine the structure of Medicaid as a safety net
• Defeat Congressional and federal administrative attempts to eliminate or weaken Medicaid expansion
Minimize the impact of the PHE unwinding

Health Equity: Improve health equity In Ohio
• Encourage Hospital Systems to Engage Communities in Antiracism Initiatives

Independence: Enable independence for people who wish to remain in their home
• Eliminate barriers associated with independent providers so that people can maintain their home independence

UHCAN Ohio has adopted Community Catalyst's approach to advocacy. UHCAN Ohio builds the voice of consumers to shape health care policies and develop solutions to meet Ohioans' needs by informing and uniting consumers and their allies to influence decision makers. Each of these 6 capacities is essential to successfully advocate for policy change. UHCAN Ohio builds each of its projects based on these 6 capacities. While we are able to operationalize all of these capacities at some level, UHCAN Ohio's role when working with partners generally focuses on campaign development, coalition and stakeholder alliances, and grassroots organizing.

Changes in policy agenda:
• changes in issues discussed to include recognition of issues that are damaging or beneficial to consumers;
• number of policy makers discussing the issues that are most impactful to consumers using the language that is favorable to consumers

Stronger networks:
• number of new individuals that are part of FB, on our mailing list, or sign up to receive information on the issue

Consumer knowledge:
• number educated;
• change in knowledge levels;

Consumer behavior:
• number and type of actions taken by consumers e.g. testimony and comments submitted

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
