President Obama Proposes 2016 U.S. Budget

The president’s budget proposes changes to Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs run by the Department of Health and Human Services that would result in $400 billion in savings over 10 years. For example, the proposal would ask Medicare beneficiaries to pay more for their health care coverage and would introduce a co-payment for Medicare beneficiaries who receive home health care services.
