LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act
(ACA). The ACA will lead to a major overhaul of the healthcare industry.
For-profit hospitals such as Health Management Associates Inc. (NYSE: HMA),
and Community Health Systems (NYSE: CYH) are expected to benefit immensely
from the ACA in the long-term. Drug delivery companies such as Elan
Corporation Plc (NYSE: ELN), and Acura Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ACUR) are
expected to see their costs rise in the near-term due to the healthcare
reform. However, the increase in number of insured individuals is expected to
benefit the entire healthcare industry in the long-term. On Thursday, the
healthcare sector ended mostly lower as the broad market struggled.StockCall
