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.
