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.

For example:

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.
