Thander sums up the issue nicely. Either A) the average customer is getting back less than they paid in (the customer loses money) or B) the average customer is getting back more than they paid in (the company loses money, goes under, and then the customer loses money). It's the job of insurance actuaries to make sure that B never happens. With your health insurance, this is still a good idea, because you could get cancer and need tens of thousands of dollars to pay for treatment. I.e. you're prepared to risk paying for a service you never use because needing it and not having it would be catastrophic. With this service, the most catastrophic case only gets you a 50% return on your money, and there's a good chance that the company wouldn't be able to make the benefits payments if that happened. In my view, I'd be less worried about lawyers from Blizzard than from the Feds.
