Foundation honored for "Roadmap to Coverage"

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts has won an award from the Council on Foundations for its Roadmap to Coverage project.

The Paul Ylvisaker Award for Public Policy Engagement, named after a former dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is given to a foundation that sets the agenda for public debate, the international association of foundations said.

The Roadmap to Coverage provided research on uninsured people and options for expanding coverage in Massachusetts.

"This award recognizes not only the importance of the work of the foundation through its efforts to support a dialogue on health reform, but is also a reflection of what the entire Massachusetts health care community has achieved through passage of the Massachusetts health reform law," Nancy Turnbull, president of the foundation, said in a statement.
