The average American worker now spends $89 a month for health insurance premiums, and will have to pay roughly $1,318 from their own pockets before providers will start to cover costs (Money, Sept 2015).

Since its initial release in 2011, Snapchat has quickly risen to the top as one of the most popular social apps among Millennials. The mobile app reached an estimated value of $19 billion as of early 2016, making it the third most valuable tech startup that does not trade publicly.
