U.S. House Introduces Bill to Repeal Medical Device Tax

April 11, 2019

The 2.3% tax (levy) on U.S. medical device sales went into effect in 2013, but this "medical device tax" was only in place for two years before Congress put a moratorium on it. When the moratorium was lifted in January 2018, a second moratorium was enacted that will expire at the end of 2019. 

 

In 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill (283-132) to fully repeal the medical device tax, but the U.S. Senate did not take any further action. 

 

In March 2019, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Senator Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) re-introduced a bill to permanently repeal the medical device tax. 

 

Today, four U.S. Representatives introduced a companion bill to the previously introduced Senate measure that would repeal the medical device tax altogether. Introduced by Representatives Ron Kind (D-Wis.), Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.), Scott Peters (D-Calif.), and Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), the bill is called the Protect Medical Innovation Act of 2019
