  •  Those under 30 can still get catastrophic policies (4+ / 0-)

    What they CAN'T get, and NOBODY should get, is policies that have ridiculous annual or lifetime maximums.  Several years ago, a young guy I knew who worked part-time at Walmart while going to college was bragging about what a great health insurance plan they had.  It had maximums that would probably be OK if you had something like a simple fracture, but that you would have been hitting up against if you needed care for anything significantly more involved than that, such as a serious automobile accident, cancer or any other serious illness or injury.  Maybe those policies are OK if you're lucky, but the purpose of insurance is to cover you if you're NOT lucky.
