Our health care nightmare

To the Editor,
What used to be called “catastrophic” insurance has been rebranded as “high deductible” insurance.  It used to be on the cheaper side because the insurance company’s liability didn’t kick in until you had already paid a large amount.  While you were covered if something truly catastrophic happened, it encouraged you to avoid seeing a doctor for day-to-day  complaints because you had to pay the whole amount out of pocket.  Delaying doctor visits until conditions get much worse is both bad for your health and ultimately more expensive.
