New York City, New York -- (May 02, 2013)
The Supreme Court, last year, upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. While the healthcare industry has generally supported ACA, some features of the act have faced criticism. One such feature is the 2.3% tax on gross U.S. sales of medical devices. Medical appliances & equipment makers say that the tax will lead to higher costs for them, hurting innovation. While the Senate voted in favor of repealing the 2.3% tax, it is unlikely that the tax will be repealed. Shares of medical appliances & equipment companies ended mostly lower on Wednesday, tracking losses in the broad market. Among the major movers were Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT), Zimmer Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ZMH), and EnteroMedics Inc. (NASDAQ: ETRM).
