Airbnb is shit. Their customer service is crap.

Also this is what makes our country great. Strangers helping each other and giving generously.

Not good healthcare insurance for all. Good healthcare insurance should be only for rich people. Like in a great country.

Catastrophic only policies are fairly cheap. Any “better” policy is going to be overpriced (i.e. insurance company will charge $1.00 for 80c worth of claims) so no value gained there unless you go to the doctor all the time, at which point it should be no surprise you spend a lot on healthcare.

Except catastrophic policies are medical jargon that lay people cannot decipher. It should be a policy that pays 100% when your hospital bill exceeds ‘X’ dollars, no questions asked. Like most insurance the company will be happy to accept money and reluctant to payout. Not having to deal with fine print and loopholes also contribute towards the quality of insurance.

That’d be nice but that’s not how life works because of how society is structured. Insurance companies need fine print to protect them from hospitals and drug companies charging ridiculous rates.

Healthcare is a critical part of your life and very complex so it can’t just be boiled down to a one liner. Take the time to read your policy. You wouldn’t buy a car without doing research so why treat your healthcare as any different?

Also, the “easier” you make it (ie less fine print) the more expensive you policy will be because it covers more so you are really going to struggle making it’s cheaper AND easier.

Even if the payout is hassle-free, the thousands of dollars in spending it takes for many people’s plans (catastrophic or not) to meet their deductible amount and out-of-pocket limit can be a big problem. And the bills can take months or even years to show up, with no warning.

Yes, and it’s better if people go to the doctor and avoid serious health conditions. We could have a fee for service system and catastrophic insurance, but people would just avoid going to the doctor until they’re sick. This would increase costs and lead to worse outcomes. Best to have as much cost as possible upfront so people have no incentive to avoid care.

Agree on Richard Kerr, one of the few TPG contributors actually worth reading

That guy Drew is a monster at the real estate backing arbitrate game. He just took real estate and cubed it into something crazy. Props to Drew for sharing on his blog. He tried original business ideas, but this one is a orchestral symphony of success.
