Obamacare, Here to Stay

The Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, may have finally shaken loose the biggest threats to its survival. It withstood a critical Supreme Court challenge, and the Democratic victories in the White House and Senate make a legislative repeal close to impossible. Touted as the biggest US healthcare reform since Medicare and Medicaid, Obamacare is expected to extend coverage to 30 million previously uninsured Americans by 2019[1]. The increased volume of insured patients could mean more revenue for hospitals and healthcare providers, while companies that focus on the Medicaid population could also stand to gain from the estimated 15 to 18 million-person increase in Medicaid enrollments.[1] In June 2012, Supreme Court decided that states have the right to opt out of Medicaid, and as of September 2013, 14 states are not participating.[2] In addition, an increased emphasis on cost containment and efficiency under Obamacare requires the adoption of electronic health records and could boost generic-drug sales[3]. This motif includes companies in healthcare sectors that are positioned to benefit from the implementation of Obamacare. See more
