Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan recently got a rude awakening about Obamacare when he received a cancellation notice in the mail for his catastrophic insurance policy.

I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC. Obamacare cancelled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thnx Mr. President!

Interesting discussion...many seem to think paying a high deductible in exchange for low cost catastrophic should be outlawed? I disagree.

Serious question...do you guys think simple catastrophic coverage should be outlawed? If so, why?

I have been a long time advocate of catastrophic with a transparent mkt for routine. Struck me as interesting that that is illegal now.



We've known for years Obamacare would get rid of catastrophic insurance plans, Ratigan just wasn't paying close enough attention. The good news is, Ratigan isn't being a hypocrite on this issue and has been a critic of Obamacare since the beginning by pointing out the cronyism between the government and healthcare insurance companies. A flashback from 2009:
