On February 1, 2010, President Obama is scheduled to deliver his proposed federal budget for fiscal year 2011, which is likely to again include provisions that would, if adopted, significantly impact federal health care policies. Congressional panels already have scheduled hearings on the upcoming proposal, including Senate Finance Committee and House and Senate Budget Committee hearings set for February 2, 2010 and House Ways and Means Committee hearings on February 3. In addition, the Senate Finance Committee is holding a hearing on February 3 to discuss the health policy provisions of the budget proposal with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
