AAPD and Organized Dentistry Coalition Urge Repeal of Medical Device Tax

The AAPD and the Organized Dentistry Coalition, along with over 700 other organizations, sent a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives in June 2012 urging a repeal of the medical device tax contained in the Affordable Care Act.   The letter raised concerns that the tax will increase the cost of medical and dental care while stifling innovation and job creation in the medical device industry.  The House subsequently voted to repeal the tax by a vote of 270 to 146, with 37 Democrats voting with the Republicans.
