ObamaCare’s Effect on Medical/Clinical Testing and Demand
Speaking of trends in medical sales: Under the new health care law, many preventative health care services are covered without requiring a copay from the patient, including screenings for diabetes, cancer, STDs, HIV, and more. I’m not sure I like how this will affect the cost of health care and the rise of insurance premiums, but I want to bring to your attention that this likely massive increase in clinical diagnostics screenings will, without a doubt, drive sales in companies that provide these tests.
Type 2 Diabetes screening for adults with high blood pressure is on the list. So, companies with a strong diabetes testing menu like Bayer, Abbott and BioRad might see an increase in demands due to this mandate.
Breast cancer mammography screenings are covered every 1 to 2 years for women over 40. That means that the top companies providing mammogram equipment (like GE Healthcare, Hologic, and Fuji Medical) will also likely see an increase in business.
