As for "insurers like to get rid of people who are actually expensively sick." they like to, but as long as you continue coverage they cant

That's because gummint refused to allow insurers to continue the practice of canceling coverage on those who made significant claims or had a bad prognosis. And gummint stepped in and passed the law mandating COBRA.

You are younger than I am so perhaps you don't remember before these laws were passed, but I do. They started, as many advances do, in liberal statehouses.
