Obamacare, or the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, could prove a boon not just for American patients but also for Filipino nurses looking for work, a party-list lawmaker said.

 

Kathrina Alvarez of Sunstar.com.ph reports Liquified Petroleum Gas Marketers’ Association (LPG-MA)  party-list Representative Arnel Ty sees a potential rise in the demand of nurses because of the U.S. health care law. The U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is mean to lower the number of Americans without medical insurance. The report quotes Ty as saying Obamacare will increase the demand for  health care by around 10 percent.

 

"This will hopefully spur a bit U.S. demand for new foreign nurses and other health practitioners such as pharmacists, physical therapists, medical technologists, radiologists, and speech pathologists," Ty reportedly said.
