    Not a good thing, but entirely predictable.

    FTA: "If the law says that insurers have to take you any time, any place, some people will see that as an opportunity to wait until their children get sick to buy coverage."

    There is nothing in the law that would stop a hospital from buying a policy for a uninsured child who came into the emergency room, she added.

    And surprise, surprise. The British have discovered that the bureaucracy is now too big and costing too much money. So the answer in their minds is now to shift the rationing to the providers.
