StockCall Study on Express Scripts, Cigna, Coventry Health Care, and Molina Healthcare

LONDON, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The healthcare industry is set for a major overhaul after the Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is expected to increase in the number of insured individuals in the U.S. significantly in the next few years. However, the healthcare industry also faces the prospect of rising costs due to the healthcare reform. The ACA will also have an impact on health care plans providers such as Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ: ESRX), CIGNA Corporation (NYSE: CI), Coventry Health Care Inc. (NYSE: CVH), and Molina Healthcare Inc. (NYSE: MOH). Health care plans providers ended mostly higher on Monday even as the broad market struggled following the release of some disappointing U.S. economic data.
