New York City, New York -- (May 15, 2013)

The Supreme Court, last year, upheld President Obama?s Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is expected to have a significant impact on the healthcare industry by next year. While the reform will lead to higher costs for the healthcare industry in the near-term, increase in the number of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the industry. The reform will be particularly beneficial to for profit hospitals such as HCA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HCA), Tenet Healthcare Corp. (NYSE: THC), Health Management Associates Inc.
