Will Obamacare tax your iPhone as a medical device?

Kenneth Corbin | March 25, 2013
Food and Drug Administration official addresses concerns that the agency will impose heavy regulations on consumer devices in health IT rulemaking and discusses possibility of iPhone tax under Obama's health care law.

"We have no intent to," Foreman said. "The only thing that would change our mind is if there was a strong safety signal, that we became aware of a device that we were not regulating appropriately under enforcement discretion, but not regulating it. That would cause us to reconsider our position. But absent strong safety signals, no, we would not change our mind."
