CBO has a panel of health advisers consisting of widely recognized experts in health policy and the health care sector. Members of the panel have a variety of backgrounds, areas of expertise, and experience. They generally serve three-year terms and are sometimes reappointed. The agency hosts periodic meetings of the advisers and solicits their views between meetings. Through those interactions, CBO and its analyses benefit from the advisers’ understanding of cutting-edge research and the latest developments in health care delivery and financing. Although such experts provide considerable assistance, CBO is solely responsible for the accuracy of its work.
