Senior Health Care In 2019: The Numbers Are In
With 2019 behind us, we have some new data at hand regarding health care for US retirees. While it isn’t all great, we did see one trend that will be good news to seniors.
Fidelity Investments’ report Health Care Price Check found that in 2019, a 65 year-old couple entering retirement can expect to cover $285,000 ($150,000 for women and $135,000 for men) in out of pocket medical expenses throughout their retirement years.
