Medical Device Tax
Have you heard much about the extra special tax tacked onto ObamaCare? The one that took effect January 1 of this year and puts an even higher tax onto medical devices? The “Medical Device Tax” will increase what you pay on things like wheelchairs and defibrillators. Now – we won’t pay these prices directly. Manufacturers of these goods have to pay for this fee increase. This basically means that those manufacturers, in order to keep their costs down and stay in business while continuing to employ people, will pass this “fee” onto the consumer.
So while proponents of this tax cry out that it’s a necessary tax for ObamaCare to work and that no cost will every come down the line to the hospital or consumer that utilizes the device, we all know that’s just not true.
