I disagree. Perhaps with an indemnity plan, someone in this case would end up not being able to afford their portion of the health expenses and have to declare bankruptcy, but with other types of plans such as HMO's and I think PPO's, this is not the case.


I have a PPO with a $2,500 annual deductible and the only reason the annual out-of-pocket limit dropped from $15,000 to $6,000 is because of Obamacare. Presumably, someone with cancer won't be working full-time (if at all). That should clean out the $2,000 he has left.
