New Tariffs Officially Hitting Imported Healthcare Supplies

Last month, the Trump administration announced the latest round of tariffs on Chinese imports that will add a 25% import tax on healthcare supplies.  We absorbed the first round of tariffs last year. Unfortunately, the new tariffs mean we will be forced to pass along on the cost of the import tax as our suppliers have done to us on many products.

We’re still working with our vendors and trying to absorb some of this increase ourselves, so you don’t see a large price hike, but we can’t yet guarantee what products will see an increase, what the increase will be, or when they will take effect.

Once the tariffs begin taking effect, rather than raise prices you will see the tariff/tax as a line item on your invoices for the products affected.  This way, you can see how the tariffs are affecting your costs, and when the trade war ends, we will simply remove the tax.

We Are Here for YOU

We are dedicated to bringing you the best products and services at the best prices. We are working hard to keep our prices as low as possible.  If you would like to look at ways to save money on supplies, we can make recommendations on products not affected by the taxes, or less expensive options. 

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns about these tariffs.

Thank you for your understanding.
