AdvaMed Urges Congress to Avert Shutdown, Protect Patients


AdvaMed, the Medtech Association, called on congressional leaders to work together to prevent a federal government shutdown.

“A shutdown of any length could seriously impact patients, as FDA, CMS, and other federal agencies related to our healthcare system will have to stop their work on the life-improving and live-saving medical technologies that so many patients across the country depend on,” said Scott Whitaker, AdvaMed President and CEO. “This will have a cascading effect on medtech innovators who are already struggling as they await FDA and CMS decisions on their medical technologies, treatments, and diagnostics. We urge Congress and the President to come together and fund the federal government and prevent a shutdown that could impact millions of patients nationwide.”
