QUOTED. July 30, 2018. Erik Paulsen.

Executive Summary

Arguing that permanently ending the 2.3% medical device tax would restore jobs at medtech companies and provide more predictability for industry, US Rep. Erik Paulsen and other GOP House members opposed to the tax voted to abolish it. See what Paulsen said about it here.

"Medical device firms already face challenges when they bring their products to FDA for approval, and then must undergo review at CMS [Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services] to get Medicare reimbursement. This bill is about giving more predictably, and certainty to an industry which makes lifesaving machines and medical supplies." –Erik Paulsen, member (R-Minn.), US House of Representatives
