A “deal” on health insurance comes with troubling strings
Bari Tessler is a little famous as a “financial therapist,” but even she gets rattled by the price of health care.
Her story is complicated. And very relatable.
Bari chose to use a Christian "health share" instead of regular insurance. It's cheaper, but it comes with strings: Things the group doesn’t cover, limits on their obligations to you… and a religious vision that not everybody is comfortable with. Including Bari.
She sees it, for now, as the least terrible of a bunch of terrible options — but she’s conflicted about it.
Also: What my family is doing for health insurance next year.
And: A taste from one of the most painfully-hilarious things to hit the Internet for a long time. Welcome to Our Modern Hospital, Where if You Want to Know a Price, You Can Go F*** Yourself, published by McSweeney’s.
