    I think the individual market could dry up. I keep hearing of companies that are leaving the market. They are concluding there is no future for them.

    It’s not clear that there will even be an individual market once Exchanges are created in 2014. New restrictions on both annual and lifetime benefit caps makes it more risky to underwrite individuals who may have health problems. The individual mandate that starts in 2014 will be enforce only sparingly. This creates an incentive for people to game the system. The market as it now exists is due to expire in three years and the risks of insuring individuals just went up. It’s no wonder why insurers are abandoning this market.

    The mind can only imagine what amateur scientists could do.

    A lot of underdoctored areas are not that far away from areas that have plenty of doctors. That’s why God invented the automobile. And if worse comes to worse, there is always the helicopter.
