The government has set up the Federal Commission on Long-Term Care required by the American Taxpayer Relief Act.
The first chair will be Bruce Chernof, and the first vice chair will be Mark Warshawsky.
Chernof is the president of the SCAN Foundation — a nonprofit foundation created by a nonprofit health insurer that works to provide “all inclusive” care for Medicare enrollees — and the foundation put out the announcement of the start of the panel.
In the past, Chernof was regional medical director for California Health Programs at Health Net, a California managed care company.
Warshawsky is director of retirement research at Towers Watson.
The other members of the 15-member commission are:
- Javaid Anwar
- Judith Brachman
- Laphonza Butler
- Henry Claypool
- Judith Feder
- Stephen Guillard
- Julian Harris
- Chris Jacobs
- Neil Pruitt
- Carol Raphael
- Judith Stein
- Grace-Marie Turner
- George Vrandenburg
The commission will meet for the first time June 27, officials said.
