Not to my knowledge. No insurance companies do have a maximum they will pay but it is stated somewhere in the policy. Therefore the person taking out the policy has actually agreed to it or they would have taken out a different policy.

So if a person buys the most expensive policy they can afford, and the maximum payout of that policy turns out to be not great enough for some catastrophic medical disaster that befalls him, that person is then out of luck and is kicked to the curb?

They would still be treated and receive a bill for the cost. Tax payers would probably end up paying the bill.

I have read that hospitals can refuse treatment if there is no insurance and the problem is not an emergency. I presume this is no longer the case because of Obamacare?
