Petition to Stop "BOTOX tax" Now Online

An online petition has been launched to allow physicians and others to voice their opinion about the so-called Botox Tax.

The US Congress is voicing interest in helping to fund the proposed health care reform movement via a 10% excise tax on all aesthetic medical procedures, from Botox and fillers to laser treatments, full-blown surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. This provision is being considered in one version of the US House of Representatives health care bill, and many physicians are claiming the tax would be ruinous to aesthetic medicine.

To voice your opinion, contact your elected representatives or sign the online petition at www.stopbotax.org.
