“Now we know the rules. Now we know what we’re playing with,” says Link. And she believes the legislation is clearly beneficial to hospitals.

That’s because hospitals must treat people in need of medical attention, whether those patients can pay their bills or not. With the act requiring everyone to carry insurance the percentage of so-called indigent patients will drop significantly.

“Universal Health is an interesting play” she says.

And if you’re looking at the HMOs, Link says she likes Aetna a lot, because they’ve lagged the group and they reiterated guidance.

However, she adds, “Don’t chase either of these names here. Not in this market, Just put them on your shopping list.”

What do you think? We want to know!
