That’s why doctors and patients alike rely on medical interpreters to provide life-saving medical information about treatments and prescriptions. Interpreter services improve the quality of care while reducing costly and deadly mistakes and errors. Ending this unnecessary and unfair tax exemption for sales of products displayed at trade shows would save medical interpreter services for thousands of patients and families.
