NAHU: President Trump Signs Delay of Cadillac & Health Insurance Taxes

President Donald Trump signed into law H.R. 195 on Mon, Jan 22, shortly after the House voted 266-150 and the Senate voted 81-18. The legislation ended a government shutdown that began on Sat, Jan 20 by providing for a short-term funding extension for the federal government through Feb 8.

The funding bill included four items impacting our health care industry:

  1. Cadillac Tax delayed until 2022
  2. Health Insurance Tax suspended for 2019
  3. Funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through fiscal year 2023
  4. Medical Device Tax moratorium extended through 2019
