It will outline how the HSE plans to implement €666 million in cuts to services as part of the budget for next year.
The plan was originally due to be delivered to the Minister by November 15th but the HSE was given extra time for its preparation owing to the challenges faced.
Dr Reilly has three weeks to consider the plan, and has the option to extend this period if he wishes.
It is understand that senior officials from the Departments of Expenditure and Public Reform and the Taoiseach are expected to examine the plan.
