22 Leaders on the CBO's Panel of Health Advisers

The Congressional Budget Office routinely releases reports and analyses that probe into the status and effectiveness of healthcare policies, and a select group of individuals helps the CBO throughout the process.

For 2014, the CBO has 22 experts on its panel of health advisers, who meet with the CBO and proffer their views and insights on the "latest developments in healthcare delivery and financing."
