“We are pleased to announce the addition of Lanhee Chen to the Partnership for the Future of Medicare’s advisory board,” said PFM co-chair Doug Holtz-Eakin, Ph.D. “We welcome Lanhee to the board and believe that his experience will help PFM further its mission as we continue to find commonsense solutions that not only help sustain but also improve the quality of care in the Medicare program.”
