Just left my job and have a month before I start a new one. Should I get COBRA? Or should I bet that I won’t go to hospital? I haven’t used my insurance even once in the last 5 years...

Get coverage and life insurance, I procrastinated and now I’m ineligible. Was as healthy as one can be, had a minor procedure after a sports injury and now have major heart and lung issues. Things can turn very fast, you just don’t know when

COBRA isn't a bad option. There are also gap policies available designed for exactly this. That's what I did between B-school and my new job. Pretty reasonable prices, and they only cover major injuries and illnesses. No preventive care or anything like that.

Arrow Icon

Get at least minimal gap coverage. Be responsible.

True! I would recommend taking one. Let everything be in control, it takes just a split second for things to go wrong.

Has anyone successfully lowered their ER bill? I had an ER visit last year - X Ray, Urology, no surgery, basically went there to be told to take ibuprofen. Got a bill totalling $2.5K after insurance. I have a low cost medical insurance with the $2.5K deductible and didn't go to the doctor much last year, so they ended up charging to the max. Talked with the hospital and insurance, got the itemized statement, but no help. Please share your wisdom with this clueless foreigner, TIA 😭

Web development geniuses - tell me what’s so hard about designing a secure online VOTING system to securely cast votes and implement it for US elections? How is it that banks and cryptocurrencies and healthcare data can be processed so securely but when it comes time to build a simple system to identify a person to fill in a voting form and send it securely to the election commission this is suddenly too vulnerable to attack? Sounds like a political move to ban high tech voting.

I have two mortgage refinance offers for about $302k. Offer #1 uses a home value of $369k and offer #2 uses a home value of $332k. $332k is the more accurate value. Offer #1 is more attractive because the LTV is lower so mortgage insurance should expire sooner and the monthly payment is a little cheaper. I'm trying to determine if there are any potential downsides to accepting offer #1 knowing that the home value in the LTV calculation is inflated. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
