A. The gross receipts or gross proceeds derived from the sale or rental of medical equipment by medical equipment suppliers doing business in Arkansas to persons enrolled in and eligible for either Medicare or Medicaid programs as described in 42 USC § 1395 and § 1396 et seq. of the Federal Social Security Act or successor program having the same purpose, or of any other present or future United States government subsidized health care program, are exempt from tax. This exemption applies only to the gross receipts or gross proceeds received directly or indirectly through an organization administering such program in Arkansas pursuant to a contract with the United States government in accordance with the terms thereof.
