President Biden today submitted to Congress his budget request for fiscal year 2024. The budget includes discussion of certain health care policies, such as Medicare solvency, behavioral health, prescription drugs, workforce and pandemic preparedness. The top-line budget request is not binding but can act as a starting point for Congress and the Administration as they begin the debate this year on raising the nation’s debt limit, funding the government and improving health care.
