Research and Markets: Los Angeles, CA Healthcare Market Overview

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/whgjrv/los_angeles_ca) has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "Los Angeles, CA Healthcare Market Overview" to their offering.

In a market where multiple headlines compete for attention, the biggest announcement is the planned acquisition of HealthCare Partners by DaVita, the nation's second-largest provider of dialysis services for kidney disease patients.

The $4.42 billion deal is eclipsed only by California's $16 billion budget deficit; statewide, cuts are proposed that will hit health systems especially hard. To generate their own cost savings, there is every indication that insurers, employers and CalPERS will continue emphasizing generics. Carriers continue to use separate deductibles to curb branded prescription drug usage.

This is also true for a new breed of health plans?many of which target the Los Angeles market and use even narrower networks, including some tied exclusively to accountable care organizations.
