Update on the Medical Device Tax

From Dr. Bicuspid:

While most products made by U.S. dental labs will not be subject to the new federal medical device excise tax that takes effect on January 1, 2013, sleep apnea devices, snore guards, and most of the materials and components that labs use to make many products or restorations will be subject to the 2.3% tax, according to the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL).

Thank you, Dr. Emmott for this great piece of your information. Your blog articles are always very informative. I am glad that our lab bills won’t go up. Do you know anything about weather this medical device tax will affect our equipments, etc? Because of your advice, we recently bought an additional Dexis sensor. We want to purchase it before 2013 to avoid this new tax. And just in case you or your readers are interested, please check out my blogMorgan Hill Dentist. It is more about oral health. Hoping you and your reader will find the information useful as well.
