Cook Medical applauds bipartisan house vote to eliminate medical device sales tax


Cook is pleased that the House of Representatives, working in a bipartisan effort, has acted to help patients needing the latest medical technologies, support hospitals struggling to control healthcare expenses, and boost U.S.-based device manufacturers in a global competitive market, by passing HR 160 to repeal the medical device excise tax.

While more needs to be done before this tax is repealed, Cook thanks the 280 legislators who voted in favor of this measure. We look forward to working with the Senate and White House to demonstrate that repealing this tax will have long-term benefits on jobs, communities and ultimately on patients needing the best health care technologies possible.
