President Donald Trump's first full budget proposal will include $3.6 trillion in spending cuts to balance the budget in the next decade, according to an article on the Becker's Hospital Review website.
Some of the proposals related to healthcare include:
• $610 billion in Medicaid cuts over 10 years. The reduction is in addition to the $839 billion pulled from Medicaid under the proposed American Health Care Act.
• Reduction in CHIP funding. Under the budget, $5.8 billion would be cut from the Children's Health Insurance Program over 10 years.
• The National Institutes of Health budget would be reduced from $31.8 billion to $26 billion
• The CDC's chronic disease prevention programs would have funding reduced by $222 million
