Well, of course. That's what makes the whole Obamacare-Compromise so awful. We need the private corporations to basically run it, because they need to stay alive, and because obviously the government is not competent to run it. But the result is that the whole healthcare system is turned over to for-profit enterprises -- enterprises that seek ALWAYS to increase profits while reducing expenses, by whatever means are legal. If they can find a way to minimize the losses that they would otherwise incur when accepting an otherwise uninsured person with an expensive pre-existing condition, they will do that. Why wouldn't they? They are not charitable organizations. The extent of their charity is whatever the initial bargain was. And that, apparently, was guaranteed billions of dollars of patient and taxpayer money in exchange for a promise that they would insure some people with preexisting conditions.
