Healthcare Costs Expected to Be More than $280,000 for Retiring Couples
How Much Is Your Health Worth?
Each year, Fidelity Investment puts out a calculation, which is the amount of money that a retiring couple today can expect to spend for the rest of their lives on health care, not including nursing home cost. A most recent estimate was approximately $280,000. Whether that’s accurate to the penny or not, it tells us that health care is incredibly expensive and it makes us professional patients. We are dependent on the medications, dependent on the systems, you know, dependent on going to your doctor or using a hospital to manage your illness.
Brain Tune Up! Protocol Can Save Your Money
What we ask you to do in Brain Tune Up! is commit with not only your time, not only your intellect and your body, but also with your pocketbook or your wallet. We do ask you to pay. We ask you to put some skin in the game. And I realize that the fee that we charge for Brain Tune Up! is not a small amount of money, although it’s certainly much less than $280,000. The difference here though is when you pay for our program and you go through that program, it generally runs somewhere between six or eight months. What we have done, kind of in the theme of Malcolm Gladwell who said it takes 10,000 hours to develop a new habit, is we have taught you what you need to know for the rest of your life.
Foundation for Short and Long-Term Health
I do continue to see the individuals who visit us through Brain Tune Up! periodically after they finish the program to make sure that they are maintaining that successful trajectory. But that investment upfront really pays off. And so, it’s just very important to bear in mind that it’s not a once and done, and goodbye, and we’ll never see you again. It’s a commitment upfront to make a change, to learn how to make that change, to really be empowered as a patient, as an individual, as a family to know what you need to do for you for the rest of your life.
