ML Strategies Health Care Preview - July 2019 #2

Mintz - Health Care Viewpoints

This week, the House is scheduled to vote on a repeal of the Cadillac tax, which is a forty percent tax on high-cost health plans. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that repealing the tax would cost an estimated $193 billion over the next ten years. That said, the bill has broad bipartisan support in both chambers and moving it through the House potentially ratchets up some pressure on the Senate to consider it. While the focus may shift to the Senate, it is not a sure thing that the legislation is considered, even if the bill has 42 cosponsors. When the House passed the medical device tax repeal in 2018, another bill with bipartisan support, the Senate never took up the legislation.
