Health Insurance a Key Component in Financial Planning
Date:4/24/2008

> within the broader scope of funding for care during retirement.

-- Long-term Care Insurance: According to a recent Employee Benefits

Research Institute study, only 32 percent of workers believe they will

not have enough money to cover health expenses and 44 percent believe

they will not be able to cover long-term care. Long-term care insurance

addresses this concern and helps protect retirement savings.

-- Medicare Supplements and Part D: The incremental cost of these products

is relatively small compared to the value they provide. For instance,

consumers can purchase Medicare Part D plans, some of which cost only

$30 per month. These plans cover up to $2,510 in initial drug costs and

also provide rich catastrophic benefits.

-- Annuities: Annuities may help people meet long-term retirement needs,

but many do not understand their potential and the role they play in

retirement planning.
