In the end cancer is cancer and policies should cover them...but pregnancy...what is the male equivalent?

    Look I understand your meaning and possible goal, that everyone is 'in it' to cover everyone's whatever a 'one size fits all' approach to health insurance and maybe that's a good idea, we'll see. But at its core I disagree. Further these 'adjustments' in the INSURANCE industry doesn't address the issue, that being MEDICAL COSTS!
    Actually, covering all of the conditions does address the issue of rising medical costs.

    What is the nature of my debt to this unknown person?

    I'm pretty sure you won't get ovarian cancer either. But you're paying for that coverage too.
    I could go on and on... Do you get the point? Do you see how stupid that objection actually is (no matter how many times Sean Hannity says it?)
    No, if you are saying that I have some personal responsibility to pay for your treatment, why do I owe you anything? Pay for it yourself.

    How so? Weren't all these conditions covered by plan specific insurance prior to ACA?

    No they weren't. As you yourself pointed out, maternity care wasn't always covered.

    Yes, it was in 'PLAN SPECIFIC' insurance policies...

    Tell me how stupid is that. Especially those that being a male or a female they will never use under any circumstances.

    No, if you are saying that I have some personal responsibility to pay for your treatment, why do I owe you anything? Pay for it yourself.
    Nope. It's a basic concept in insurance called 'risk pools'. Insurance plans can't work unless you understand it. Some people have health issues, some don't. Risks vary between participants and you pay for the average risk, even if you yourself are 'below average' risk.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    It's only stupid if you haven't bothered to think about it.

    I assume this means you can't either understand or contest my point.
