Copays and Treating People Like Responsible Adults

This article "When a Copay Gets in the Way of Health" from the New York Times rubs me the wring way.  Do we treat people like responsible adults or like children to be controlled.

If I do not change the oil in my car my engine warranty is void. Should we not allow insurers to try to keep their insureds taking high value low cost drugs, like if you did not buy the prescribed drugs each month and you have a heart attack we will not pay the full bill.
