Medtech CEOs Like Stryker's Lobo 'Scared' Of 'Medicare For All' Driving Lower Device Prices, Former CMS Chief Says

Executive Summary

Former CMS Administrator Thomas Scully says device companies like Stryker Corp. are "scared to death" of the coming "Medicare for All" debate in Congress. But Stryker CEO Kevin Lobo disagrees, noting he can sell hip and knee replacements in single-payer countries as easily as in the US. Industry group AdvaMed – of which Lobo is the current chairman of the board – is taking a wait-and-see attitude before jumping into the debate, says chief advocacy officer Greg Crist.
