Catastrophic aka bare bones was mentioned as being "free" somehow by you.

This is where you make it clear that you didn't understand. I'm talking about people who don't carry any actual insurance at all, not people like you who pay for a catastrophic policy. People who don't carry any insurance at all, will still get barebones emergency and catastrophic care despite not having insurance to cover it. Those people are effectively getting a free catastrophic policy and you and everyone else who buys insurance are paying for it.

Well this is clearer than your first comment.

Now why are they getting it free? Due to another govt mandate for emergency care.

Yes I do. You don't understand it. You made what was essentially a collectivist argument for a national health insurance mandate. That's not part of limited govt philosophy, free trade or free markets. Furthermore, mandates drive up costs too. They push the demand curve.

BTW, not everybody participates in our allopathic health care system either. They refuse it for alternative medicine.
