Colorado Youth Advisory Council

Engaged Public is the new project management team for the Colorado Youth Advisory Council (COYAC). COYAC is a vehicle to give young people an opportunity to offer first-hand information to our legislators about issues affecting Colorado's teens.  COYAC members focus on: developing a greater knowledge of policy issues and the policy making process, research and learning about the current policy environment with the help of subject matter experts, and presenting their recommendations and suggestions to the legislature. Engaged Public supports COYAC by helping with organizational and program development.

Engaged Benefit Design Pilot

In most cases, a health care benefit package serves as a list of what is covered and what is not. What if they instead became a tool for consumers and providers to learn about various treatments options and then make safe, effective decisions about how to proceed? The Engaged Benefit Design is supporting top physician leaders to build an evidence-based benefit package that will be pilot tested over the next few years. 

Engaged Benefit Design team members Dave Downs and Barb Yondorf co-authored an article in February 2013 Health Affairs titled, “State Insurance Exchanges Face Challenges In Offering Standardized Choices Alongside Innovative Value-Based Insurance.”  The article explores the flexibility of state insurance exchanges to include innovative features in their plans, of which our Engaged Benefit Design is offered as an example.

Bighorn Leadership Development Program

Bighorn Leadership Development Program provides Coloradans opportunities to learn about the most compelling issues that face the state and equips them to get involved and to shape the future. Among the nearly 400 alumni are scores of elected officials and policy activists in every field. This program is offered in collaboration with Colorado State University.

Backseat Budgeter

Backseat Budgeter® is a tool to help citizens understand the tradeoffs associated with spending our public dollars. It enables users to experience what it is like to manage a public budget, see the effects of decisions, and appreciate the complexities of the public budgeting process.  Since introducing Backseat Budgeter in 2009, it has received tremendous media attention.
