Medtech Supporter Sen. Orrin Hatch To Retire At Year's End

Executive Summary

The medtech industry will lose a champion in Congress when Senate Finance Panel Chair Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, retires at the end of the 2018 congressional session. Author of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Children's Health Insurance Program law, Hatch has been a perennial supporter of device-tax repeal, introduced market-based pricing for lab test reimbursements, and sponsored deep cuts in taxes for corporations in tax reform legislation signed into law just last month. Might former Massachusetts governor and failed 2008 US presidential candidate Mitt Romney run for the soon-to-be vacated seat?
