Arbitrary bills successfully making the poor's healthcare subsidies subsidize the rich.

This is because insured with outstanding meical debt are often not allowed to access the healthcare system, while the subsidy payments and bills in their names do not stop. The money end up effectively lowering the health insurance bills of the wealthy who can afford to use their "insurance". The Obamcare system, which ironically was intended to stop "free riding" and the "collapsing" of health care related prices by subsidizing the insurance and drug companies with tax money to preserve the system (which has killed many tens of thousands of Americans each year before their time} has become a means of creating large flows of money that subsidized wealthy people by sucking up payments intended so that the poor could get healthcare.

This is illustrated graphically by how much nongroup insurance rates have fallen since 2009 in some expensive areas like New York.

Its important to remember that for people with a very long list of common health conditions, health insurance was absolutely impossible to obtain or insanely expensive at the date in 1998 when the standstill took effect. Many of those so called "uninsurables" were able to purchase health insurance under Obamacare, but its unclear for how long. A standstill clause limits regulation to those existing on its 'standstill date' and no more.

So the changes made in 2010 may be fairly short lived, barring some emergency which could be used to allow it bei9ng extended. Could coronavirus be used? I don't know and I dont think anybody does. The most important thing to realize is that I am not a trade lawyer. Also, I am more than a little biased, I see whats happening as a crime against humanity not just a run of the mill case of dishonest or irresponsible politics. Also because Trump already established what could be done for that emergency, and it was limited to verified active cases of coronavirus exclusively.I suspect that the imperative thats being expressed in high places to end the protectionist measures from the l;ast financial crisis, i supect its emergency is the financial crisis of 2010, and that in order to maintain the rigid ideological stance the US is well known for, some way will be found to revert to the pre-2010 regulatory regime (which is more profitable) soon in order to get foreign insurers to come in. I think their plan is an online auction for patuients, which will "justify" a vast increase in data collection and sales (that data on billions of people all around the world,. is considered to be an asset of US data mining firms.. that they can and will sell. .Why is it so important?"  Because without it and the ability to choose atients and price their care based on their health status, selling insurance wouldnt be anywhere near as profitable as what the foreign insurance and healthcare firms have been trained to see as their entitlement. The situation in 1998. Using GATS and soon TISA, the 1998 status quo has been locked in in perpetuity. Businesses get CERTAINTY under GATS. Nothing is as important as preserving the value of their property.

Hard choices may may be made as the healthcare of many Americans is too expensive.

But no matter what, those with more money must get more, and those with less money must get less.

Many may be loing their jobs, homes, and careers due to GATS. But, the system will win out. And the precious inequality will be preserved.

The politicians need their help to avoid whats called moral hazard.

I suspect that Health insurance Rates for an middle-aged couple in 2009 in New York County were higher than the entire US's average income.  Of course as promised, the rate of increase after Obamacare was modest at the beginning. It would be hard for it not The system here in America was under a microscope. In a sense it was on its best behavior because lots of people were aware what a terrible deal Americans were getting, while others were ecstatic over the huge profits being made at the top. . Was it increased by only a few percent as promised? prices went down after Obamacare but it wasn't because the problem of healthcare not being affordable was solved by any means.

Obamacare creates a financial incentive for patients to not bring up health problems that they have because "curative" care (the kind most people need) is billed at the usual often arbitrary random way, unpredictability which is terrifying and impossible for poor people, who rarely have a large amount of money available to pay a sudden large doctor bill. Under the cashless system, these bills will likely be automatically deducted from peoples accounts leading to either bills like rent bouncing or huge additional fees, in other words free money for banks, that their customers cannot afford.

This makes it so people are afraid to communicate their health status to doctors.

This means that poor people will often not go to the doctor unless its a life threatening emergency. Even then sometimes they will try to avoid going because they simply cannot afford the costs that come, almost every time they go to the doctor.

It's a miracle they still manage. But a cashless system and widespread privatization of financial services  will make it much more difficult, while funneling free money to the banks and insurance companies.
