The budget provides the President’s recommendations for how the Congress should fund the government and marks the beginning of the FY 2019 budget season.

“This year’s budget comes on the heels of a major congressional agreement that explicitly funded many specific healthcare priorities, including $6B to fund responses to the opioid crisis and mental healthcare, $4B for Veterans Health, and $2B for the NIH,” said Dan Mendelson, president at Avalere Health. “This budget discussion is meaningful in implementing these changes, as well as the further programmatic reductions that will fund them.”
