Well that is kind of dumb. If I was looking for a pickup truck or a digital camera, I would simply go to google and run a search for those things. Not put them as terms in an app that may or may not bother me with those things while I am busy looking at something else.

The uninsured would have gone the hospital and not paid a dime anyhow. The ACA doesn't change much for injuries except some accounting on the billing side.

For preventable diseases, this will cause previously uninsured to seek a doctor instead of waiting for it to be an emergency. An emergency room visit is about 100x more expensive than a doctor's office visit. Plus everything dangerous is more survivable the earlier it is detected.
