Until and unless the Congress rips out all the legislation that protects big pharma from having to compete with drug sales from other countries, forcing hospitals to treat illegal aliens with no ability to pay and thus creating the need for hospitals to suck the financial life out of anyone shut out of getting insurance and thus negotiated rates, shields any and all medical providers from transparency and competition, yes, they damn well better have a meaningful transition for people with preexisting conditions. Many here do not seem to realize that without insurance that has negotiated rates, medical providers can and do charge up to FOUR TIMES the amount for a given procedure. So, once again, over many years and much legislation, government has created this scenario. If you truly want a free market, ALL of it has to be ripped out. Not just rip out Obamacare and believe that it's all fixed now.
