Hatch, Bipartisan Group of Senators Announce Legislation to End Tax on Medical Device Manufacturers

The United States Senate Committee on Finance published a press release regarding a bill to eliminate the Medical Device Tax.  “Every dollar medical device manufacturers spend on this onerous tax is a dollar taken away from American innovation, job growth, and the ability to provide groundbreaking medical technologies to patients in need,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch. “Both Republicans and Democrats understand just how bad this tax really is, and we owe it to the American people to ensure the development of life-saving medical devices are not plagued by high-costs that will, ultimately, be passed on to patients. This is a common-sense bill, and I’m hopeful Congress will act swiftly to repeal this misguided tax once and for all.”
