RAND Health Insurance Experiment critiques

I have neither the qualifications nor the access to properly understand these two paywalled critiques of the RAND Health Insurance Experiment.

Health Plan Switching and Attrition Bias in the RAND Health Insurance Experiment

The Rand Health Insurance Study: A Summary Critique

Has there been any talk about either of these on OB/LW?  If not, why not and could anyone with access to the papers make any comments about how much weight they carry?

I post this here because the RAND results are brought up so often in discussions here, I hope others find it to be an appropriate venue.
