Congress delays medical device tax for two years
Almost no one got everything they wanted out of the Monday deal to reopen the government — except perhaps medical device companies, who managed to fend off an industry-wide excise tax before the first payments were due.
The delay of the
device tax was originally included in the spending package as a sweetener for Republicans who have long opposed many of the Obamacare law’s taxes. The bill also delays the so-called Cadillac tax, a 40 percent tax on high-cost employer insurance, until 2022.
Mark Leahey, president of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association, said in a statement that the group applauds Congress for “protecting medical technology innovation from the destructive impact of the medical device tax,” and urged Congress to pass a permanent repeal of the tax this year.
