Healthcare is an expensive and essential expense to ensure health and quality of life.
The Health Care Cost and Utilization Report (HCCUR) annual report found that healthcare spending was highest between the ages of 55–64 and generally only increased with age. What does that mean in dollar amounts? Annually those over 55 spend on average $10,688+ depending on varying health factors. That’s a lot of money if you are on a fixed income!
