"I'm anticipating $1,000/month for insurance and $500 for other health expenses (deductibles, co-pays, medicine/medical devices, vision & dental care, OTC stuff, nutritional supplements like fish oil and calcium). This is more than 3x what we're paying for these things now."

I'm paying 15x what I was 10 years ago.

When you reach age 60, your health insurance costs jump. Then cost increase go on top of that.

Plus my employer capped their payment in my behalf at $3K per year. So now I pay full increase each year. And this year they reduced coverage to 90%, 10% copay.
