Shortages and markets black and grey

Tyler Cowen, who blogs at Marginal Revolution, recently posted this about students at the University of Toronto and how they are dealing with the problem of shortages in classes.  I wonder if this could be done with looming healthcare shortages.  Such shortages are sure to come in that industry if the government resorts to price controls to keep prices from rising because Obamacare increases the demand for healthcare and does nothing to increase the supply.

    They may do price controls, but all its really going to do is increase the deductible. I’ve seen on the news where people’s insurance deductibles increase from 2500 to 12000 to meet the needs. Why have insurance? Many people are just paying the penalty. My girlfriend’s part time insurance dropped her because it didn’t meet the required obamacare standards. Luckily for her she is a student and was able to get decent insurance on her own.
