'With the coverage of the government shutdown, it’s really important to understand what the main argument against the tax is and why people are so adamantly opposed to the medical device tax.' -Brian Johnson, MassDevice publisher and co-founder

(PRWEB) October 09, 2013

In response to questions about healthcare reform, MassDevice, an online journal of the medical devices industry, spoke with reporters from NPR to provide an in-depth Q&A about the controversial medical device tax.

“With the coverage of the government shutdown, it’s really important to understand what the main argument against the tax is and why people are so adamantly opposed to the medical device tax,” said Brian Johnson, MassDevice publisher and co-founder, who spoke to NPR in the article. “I was thrilled to speak with NPR about some of the issues that I have heard device makers voicing in the industry.”

Addressing questions about the tax itself and its place as part of the government shutdown, the article was published on September 30th on WBUR, Boston’s NPR station. Discussing the tax’s role in the recent government shutdown, the burden that the tax places on fledgling companies, and the interaction between medical device companies and the healthcare reform bill, author Carey Goldberg and MassDevice’s Brian Johnson thoughtfully discuss the past, present, and future of the medical device tax.
