Twisted reality. Meanwhile Biden will tell you more Americans than ever have healthcare coverage, and CV will call it a goalpost.

This is just bizarre - COBRA is generally very expensive, and is the OP's point that instead of just getting a job and working, people prefer to find legal ways to cheat companies?

Not all insurance covers IVF.

Most insurances don't cover it, and it is extremely expensive. Much more than the cost of Cobra

Obviously you'd want to run the numbers*, but worth pointing out that you can execute a plan that really only requires 1-2 months of cobra.

My guess is that 1st month of coverage would be subsidized by the employer. This is when the couple would undergo pre-ivf testing. Months 2-3 premiums would be paid entirely by the (ex) employee when the woman would receive injections and then undergo egg retrieval and embryo transfer. With G-d's help, the couple could revert back to non-cobra insurance coverage in months 4+ with a happy healthy pregnancy and delivery.

In any event, it seems odd that Amazon requires no waiting period for benefit eligibility.

*Pretty much an effort in futility, since doctors and hospitals won't readily divulge their contracted rates. Maybe the situation has improved since the onset of rate transparency.
Risk is opportunity

So they have an algorithm that assigns nikkud? What about all of the words in the gemara that have multiple pronunciations (typically different ones for different communities)? Any word on the underlying methodology?

Funny, or just strange?

Neither. Just an insightful observation, which makes it interesting.
