"Parts of the law appear to be here to stay. One such provision, now widely accepted, says that insurers cannot deny coverage because of a person’s medical condition or history."

Call it welfare, call it confiscation, call it fascism, call it the prohibition of insurance, call it what you like, but don't call it insurance.
