The Affordable Care Act (ACA) also has some changes that came into effect this year. In order to include a greater number of Americans receiving preventive care, the ACA now provides new funding for state Medicaid programs which cover preventive services for patients at little or no cost. Medicaid payments to Primary Care Physicians was increased to 100% as of January 1st of this year, as well as providing two more years of funding to continue coverage for children not eligible for Medicaid which will be effective as of October 1 of this year.

"This is pretty impressive news. The medical industry has consistently been making strides and improvements, incredibly throughout the recession. The incentives here for Primary Care Physicians and their support staff are extremely important. There are jobs being created throughout the industry; there are entirely new industries being created inside the Healthcare Industry. The Medical industry has grown and changed this past year; the economy has changed, as well. The changes don't have to be a bad thing; they can just be a turning point and the start of a new chapter. The Healthcare Industry is a major job creator and a hugely dynamic influence in the financial world right now. So, it's definitely the place to be and the place to be looking for opportunities," encourages John Burkhardt Managing Director of Medzilla.com.
