We sit down with Catherine L. Chen, an anesthesiologist and health services researcher. Join us as she shares her personal story of facing a Medicare Part B enrollment denial for her mother during a vacation in Hawaii. Catherine’s unique perspective as a physician-scientist unveils the complexities of the Medicare system and the emotional journey her family endured. Together, we explore the challenges of navigating Medicare, discuss potential improvements, and hear how Medicare coverage played a pivotal role in her mother’s recovery and return to an independent life.
Catherine L. Chen is a board-certified anesthesiologist and health services researcher with a primary research interest in optimizing the quality and value of care that patients receive during the perioperative period. She can be reached on X @DrChenMD.
