In 2018, Elon Musk famously said that people need to work “80 to 100 hours per week” if they want to change the world. His comments are a reflection of the view that it is not enough to work smart — you have to work hard, too. 

Unfortunately for Mr. Musk, while working those kinds of hours helped him create successful businesses, they may take a terrible toll on his health and future ventures. Working 80-plus-hour weeks is not sustainable for most and leads to poor concentration and high levels of unsustainable stress.

Private health insurance helps you cover the cost of hospital treatments as well as some out-of-hospital services, such as benefits for dental.

3.5 million workers likely lost their employer-provided health insurance in the past two weeks

We estimate that 3.5 million workers were at high risk of losing their employer-provided health insurance in the past two weeks. Because the United States is unique among rich countries in tying health insurance benefits to employment—roughly half of all U.S. workers receive health insurance through their own employer’s provided coverage—many of the newly unemployed will suddenly face prohibitively costly insurance options.
