Is Health Insurance Rationing on the Table?

■ Data Point 1: Health insurance ≠ health care

■ Data Point 2: We already know that health care is being rationed

Question: Is health insurance rationing “the next big thing?”

Reason I ask is this tidbit from The North Star State’s Pioneer Press:

Insurance companies on the individual market will increase their premiums between 50 percent and 67 percent … and almost all the plans will put caps on the number of total customers they accept.” [emphasis added]

About the massive premium hikes we already knew, but that highlighted section is bone-chilling. With one very unusual exception, I have never heard of a carrier putting a limit on how many plans it would sell. Think about it: have you ever heard a car dealer say “hey, we’ve already sold too many cars this month, let’s take a break?

On the other hand, the government isn’t telling car dealers to lose money every month, either.

Exit question: How long until it’s in your state?
