Dental Supply Companies and Labs Raising Their Rates Due to Medical Device Excise Tax – How to Question those Increases

We have heard from our clients and others in the dental community that
supply and lab companies are raising their rates at least 2.3% across the board
due to the new medical device excise tax. This across the board raise may be nothing
more than a move to use this new tax as an excuse to pad their profits. We are suggesting
that dentists who receive such a notice to challenge these companies and ask
them to furnish the FDA list of those products that are subject to this excise
tax to verify their claim that they are subject to the tax.
