ABSTRACT This study explores the methods used by retirees with moderate to high investable assets to cover current health care needs and expected long term care costs. Results indicate that former employer plans and Medicare are common for covering current health care needs and few retirees have no coverage. Self-insuring and long-term care policies were common plans to cover long-term care costs, while many planned to spend down assets to qualify for Medicaid or had not even thought about how to pay for these costs.
