What is Out-Of-Pocket?

Healthcare is confusing, but it doesn't need to be. The goal of Out-Of-Pocket is to make healthcare accessible, entertaining, and understandable for anyone that wants to learn how it works. We're building a newsletter, crash courses, educational novelty products, and more to help cut through the noise and explain plainly the business of healthcare and where the industry is heading.

I say we but right now it's just me, Nikhil. I did some stints at CB Insights and TrialSpark, and now I'm trying to get more smart people interested in tackling problems in healthcare.
