Healthcare Reform: Winners and Losers

The recent decision of the United States Supreme Court upholding the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known generally as the healthcare reform bill leaves intact the mechanisms of concern to the industry and the provisions that some in the industry will look forward to in business planning.   These include an expanding patient base with potential for new customers, tax credits for a few select industries and taxes on pharmaceutical and medical device industry.     

Therefore Kalorama Information’s 2010 analysis of this law- including the likely impact on various healthcare stakeholders - will apply and may be of use to some healthcare customers today.  A lot of the industry has been ‘putting off’ consideration of the provisions pending the Court decision, so this may be a timely reminder of the provisions of the bill and expected industry impact from analyst Alison Sahoo.    There is no charge for the White Paper, though registration including a valid credit card number is required for our website.
