Trump approves legislation repealing medical device tax

December 23, 2019

President Donald J. Trump signed H.R. 1865, a bipartisan year-end spending package, into law on December 20, 2019. H.R. 1865, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate last week, includes a full repeal of the medical device tax--a 2.3% tax on a range of medical devices and products that previous research has shown to have minimal benefits for doctors, patients and manufacturers.
