MDMA Statement on the First Device Tax

Payments Suspension

Washington, D.C. – Mark Leahey, President and CEO of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA), issued the following statement today recognizing the first suspended payments of the medical device tax:

“For the first time in three years, medical technology innovators are able to invest more resources into improving patient care and creating jobs instead of paying a punitive tax. 

“While many thought this day would never come, MDMA remained committed to this important work, and we will not rest until the medical device tax is fully repealed.  We look forward to working with the broad bipartisan support in Congress to make sure that the last medical device tax payment has been made, and that med tech innovators are empowered to solve the pressing challenges facing our healthcare ecosystem.”
