Weekly Policy Update: House Repeals Medical Device Tax

Friday, July 27, 2018


On behalf of Colorado BioScience Association thank you for your efforts to secure a yes vote on H.R. 184 - Protect Medical Innovation Act of 2017. We appreciate the time you took to advocate to your representative on the importance of a permanent repeal of the medical device tax credit. In part due to your efforts, this week the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 184, the standalone legislation which permanently repeals the medical device excise tax.  

Weekly Policy Update: Full Repeal of the Medical Device Tax Advocacy

Friday, July 20, 2018

A permanent repeal of the medical device excise tax remains a top priority for CBSA and Colorado's medtech innovators. While we are appreciative of temporary relief through the two- year suspension as part of the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government, that abatement is set to expire on December 31, 2019.
