“Medical Alley Association thanks Congressman Paulsen for his leadership and proposal to suspend the medical device tax for another five years. With bipartisan support and over 260 cosponsors, this proposal signals to health consumers and innovators that Congress is committed to helping people get the care and technology they need. While we know that Congressman Paulsen and others will continue to seek full repeal, this extension would allow current investments and plans to move forward, giving health consumers additional confidence in treatment options and improved outcomes.
