Baby Bust

Affordable Care Act Accretion

  • The ACA is expected to increase the number of insured people in the U.S. by 15M in 2014, leading 95% of all Americans to be carrying health insurance longer term.  Is this a  reasonable expectation?
  • What changes can we expect to medical consumption?  The newly insured will be young, and in specific categories, we can identify products and services which may increase significantly beginning in 2014.
  • We'll also look at some of the headwinds that may derail what appear to be optimistic consensus outlook.
  • Best Long Ideas: HOLX, HCA
