25 months ago, we celebrated the two-year delay of the medical device tax. Two weeks ago, we celebrated again with another two-year delay, retroactive to December 31, 2017.
Presumably you were preparing for January 29, when the Treasury Department was expecting your tax payment.
You dodged that bullet. What are you going to do with the money you saved?
THE TALK TRACK
Back in June 2015, I shut http://bit.ly/remember-this-one after 680 comments, some of them downright nasty.
I later featured this challenge from Paul Stein http://bit.ly/show-yourself here, paraphrasing,
“The extra income can’t simply be bonuses. If we don’t retool, purchase equipment and facilities, or hire, we’ll show we’ve just been crying wolf.”
So tell us in today’s comments, what are you going to do with the extra money?
I got a LinkedIn solicitation so bad that I had to write about it.
SUPER BOWL WINNER
No one predicted this Super Bowl accurately. The closest was Bob Dummer from Teleflex with a guess of Eagles 34 – Patriots 27 so he and three friends will be my guests at MDTX on April 3.
The rest of you, don’t despair. We lowered prices! See https://medgroup.biz/10x
Make it a great week.
That said, the idea that the government could do a better job with the 2.5% than private enterprise seems to ignore the abysmal performance record of big government. It’s big government that has driven up the cost of healthcare in general, primarily via regulatory burden. Sometimes that burden is bureaucratic in origin, sometimes it’s a result of corporate lobbying trying to keep the “little guy” out of the market. Either way, less government would result in lower healthcare costs and better outcomes.
