MDMA Statement on House Legislation to Extend the Medical Device Tax Suspension for Two Years

Washington, D.C. – Mark Leahey, President and CEO of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA), issued the following statement today regarding legislation in the House of Representatives that includes a provision to extend the suspension of the medical device tax for two additional years:

“A two-year continuation of the medical device tax suspension is recognition that innovators should never have to make another payment as a result of this disastrous policy again.  MDMA supports this continuing resolution and we remain committed to working with the overwhelming bipartisan coalition in Congress to obtain a full and permanent repeal of the medical device tax so that our nation’s proud med tech ecosystem can reach its full potential and develop the cures and therapies of tomorrow.”
