        Insurance companies will do very well under Obamacare for a year or so - mostly by conning people into policies they shouldn't have bought.

        As it shakes out, two things will happen, and insurers and doctors know it:

        1. The BEST insurers, typically subscriber-owned and/or non-profits, are going to win out, because it becomes easier to compare and word of mouth will continue to weed out the truly profitable plans. People in the individual market are all asking each other now, "Which one do you have?"

        2. The veil is getting ripped off providers. The deductibles will insure it - people go for a 20-minute visit and get hit with $1,500 in bills...won't last long.

        The MLR insures that insurance is not a long-term investment. Insurers HATE ACA.
