Employee Health Fund

Mateo has an ear infection and can’t afford to see a doctor because of their high deductible health plan. Since this is common in the store, Amy sets up a fake charity to help raise funds for Mateo to pay for a doctor’s visit. Jonah thinks this is preposterous and tries to setup a savings club that employees can use when they need it. After realizing how many pre-existing conditions his coworkers have, they realize that the $20 membership fee isn’t enough to cover all of their issues. These scenes serve as a good example of adverse selection since the sickest employees are more likely to sign up for the program since their healthcare costs outweigh the membership fee.
