    high deductibles that increase the percentage of costs the insured pays are a problem in junk insurance.  Maybe the diarist can address what, if any stop loss measures were taken in the bill.  There were some in the bill, but I believe the criticism was that they should set total out of pockets at a lower number.  I think people were advocating for not more than 20% paid by insured and plan was closer to 60%.

    That would be a different section of the law and a little different than the usual complaint about junk insurance which is that it covers few risks.
