FRIDAY MATH: Why You'll Pay $2 In Family Counseling For Every $1 You Save Your Company Via a Vasectomy...
I know you're wondering how the math listed in the title becomes a reality, right? It's pretty simple actually. You think the inclusion of vasectomies as "fully covered" in your medical plan would be a slam dunk. After all, pregnancies cost a lot of money, and also have a lot of downside risk.
It's all fun and games until your employee (or their husband) meets up with a South American urologist. Check out this email chain from my inbox, then join me after the break for analysis.

I just saw a local TV spot from a Urology practice that was pitching to men to schedule a 'no scalpel' vasectomy to correspond with March Madness - so you could spend the '2-3 day' recovery time sitting on the sofa watching basketball. I guess sort of clever.On Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 8:40 PM, Kris Dunn <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
When I got fixed, I bought my first big screen and did it on friday of the tourneys first weekend. Only way to do it.My guy made me and Ang come in for a consult, and he proceeds to ask us if we are sure, because he sees a lot of 45 year old dudes come in 10 years later with a young second wife who is ready to crank out some kids.Thanks Doc.

to Billy, Frankie, Marshall:
That's right. My urologist actually asked "us" if we were sure we wanted to do the procedure, because he saw all these guys coming back in on their second and third marriage with a younger wife ready to have kids. He asks if "we" are sure. In front of Mrs. Capitalist. He asked 2 or 3 times. A little different than the marriage counseling you get from you pastor.
You've got to be kidding me, right? Mrs. Capitalist took it pretty well. I got the big screen, watched March Madness and played pickup basketball the next week waaaaaay too early. But that's another post.
Highly recommend getting this procedure done on a Thursday/Friday morning during March Madness. Highly recommend passing on the South American urologist with a different set of social norms than two kids from Missouri.
