Medical Device Tax

Healthcare reform legislation included a 2.3% excise tax on the sale of medical devices by manufacturers, producers, or importers. The tax will apply to FDA Class I, Class II, and Class III medical devices with exemptions for glasses, contacts, hearing aids and other products sold to the public at retail at the Secretary’s discretion.  The tax begins January 1, 2013 and is projected to collect $20 billion by 2019.
