GENERIC DRUGS AND OBAMACARE CREDITED WITH THE DECLINE

A 65-year-old couple retiring this year will need $220,000 to pay for healthcare for the rest of their lives, an amount that is eight percent less than a year ago, according to a Fidelity Investments report issued Wednesday. Fidelity has been forecasting the cost of healthcare in retirement since 2002, and has forecast lower lifetime costs only once before - an eight percent drop in 2011.

Experts are hesitant to call a long-term downward trend, but lower healthcare inflation is a boon to retirees, since healthcare costs are one of the largest single expenses they face in retirement.
