The ACA is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. Healthcare companies are assessing the impact of the healthcare reform on their businesses. While proponents of the reform say that the increase in the number of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the healthcare industry, those opposed to it such as medical devices companies say that it will increase costs and hurt innovation. Perhaps, the biggest beneficiary of the healthcare reform will be hospitals such as HCA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HCA) and Tenet Healthcare Corp. (NYSE: THC), and long-term care facilities provider Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD). The reform is also likely to have an impact on companies such as Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF).
