MDMA continues to be the leading voice in Congress driving
the efforts to repeal the medical device tax.
The grassroots efforts of MDMA members have been
instrumental in garnering a 79-20 vote in the Senate to include device tax repeal
as a priority, and over 260 bipartisan cosponsors on repeal legislation in the
House of Representatives.
Engagement by MDMA members and industry has resulted in
hearings in both the House and Senate with witnesses testifying to the
devastating impact of the tax, and over 1000 stakeholders signing a letter sent
to Senate and House leadership calling for repeal.
MDMA Medical Device Tax Working Group meets on an "as needed" basis via teleconference. Email notification will be sent to all working group participants when a call has been scheduled. If you would
