Exclusion requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are available for any product meeting specified HTSUS numbers and product descriptions, regardless of whether an exclusion request was filed by the importer.

Organizations such as the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living and the Health Industry Distributors Association have asked for an indefinite extension.

AHCA/NCAL and HIDA have also suggested eliminating tariffs on chassis, the trailers that transport shipping containers to help alleviate the transportation delays that have been plaguing the healthcare industry since the pandemic began. National transportation disruptions have made it extremely difficult for healthcare facilities to obtain supplies in a timely, reliable fashion.

New locations and state-of-the-art technology keep SpecialtyRx ahead of the curve, enabling them to service their customers under any circumstance.
