Healthcare Reform Implementation Should Boost IVD Industry Slightly: Kalorama Information Report
Date:8/26/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

On the whole, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is expected to benefit the IVD and clinical lab test industry slightly, according to Kalorama Information.

It’s an industry that lives or dies based on test procedure numbers and thus the growth in the number of persons with health care coverage is good news for IVD.”

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590) passed in 2010 is a complex legislation that affects virtually every aspect of healthcare and many of its provisions are beginning to take effect now. The overall objective of the PPACA is to expand access to health care coverage for most U.S. citizens and legal residents by requiring individuals to have coverage and employers to either provide coverage or pay a penalty that would support coverage from a pool of public funds.
