PRESENTING YOUR CBO HEALTH ADVISORS!

Over at the Congressional Budget Office, they've announced the composition of this year's Health Advisory Panel. "We host periodic meetings of the advisers at our office and solicit their views between meetings via e-mail exchanges and conference calls. Through these interactions, we benefit from the advisers’ understanding of cutting-edge research and the latest developments in health care delivery and financing. As a result, the quality of CBO’s analysis of health policy is greatly enhanced." It's a good group -- sort of a who's who of heath wonks. Notable participants include David Cutler, the architect of Obama's health care plan in the primary, and Jonathan Gruber, one of the key contributors to the Massachusetts reforms.
