Over the past five years, increasing acceptance and adoption of alternative healthcare has supported growth in the Alternative Healthcare Providers industry. While healthcare reform will attract individuals back to conventional healthcare, it will prohibit health insurance companies from discriminating against licensed alternative healthcare providers. Moreover, industry growth is expected to continue as the mounting incidence of disability, the aging population and rising disposable income significantly contributes to revenue growth over the five years to 2020.
