The New York Times has a good article about the growing trend of uninsured young adults (h/t Lifehacker). This is a big problem, especially for freelancers, grad students, etc. Our society has attached health insurance to employment, which I don’t see working so well in the near future (internet generation, self-employed, consultants, etc.). As a scary side note, I know of a friend who was told by his/her parents’ insurance company that he/she would be dropped from the health insurance plan at midnight the day of undergrad graduation.
Hi! I’m Chris, I run cities and counties (city management) by day and dabble in web development by night. And raise three kids.
This is my personal website, where I talk a little about government, a little about web design, and whatever else I find interesting. If you would like to contact me, I'm available here.
My short form writing is available on my Micro.blog.
