Medical Device Tax Hits Close to Home
As Americans prepare for the onset of the Affordable Care Act next year, the medical device industry in Indiana is still pushing for a repeal of a tax that was passed along with the Act in 2009. The medical device industry is one of the largest employers in Monroe County, and throughout Indiana. There are roughly three hundred and twenty-five device companies in the state, and Cook Medical alone employs about thirty-five hundred people in the region around Bloomington. With the implementation of the Act just over two months away, predictions vary about what effect it will have on the industry, and whether the tax will remain in place. WFHB Assistant News Director Joe Crawford brings us the story for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
