Fidelity Investments reported Thursday that a 65-year-old couple retiring this year can expect an estimated $275,000 in health care and medical expenses throughout retirement.

Fidelity’s annual analysis of retirees’ health care costs represented a 6% increase over last year’s estimate but a whopping 70% increase since its initial retiree health care cost estimate in 2002.


The report noted that HSAs are paired with high-deductible health plans, which often have lower monthly premiums than traditional health plan offerings. They also include three key tax benefits: contributions go in tax-free, and balances and savings can be withdrawn for medical costs free of federal taxes.

A key step in maximizing the value of HSAs, Fidelity said, is ensuring that employees invest their contributions, which will help them take full advantage of any tax-free growth.
