When turning 65 most Americans will begin accessing Medicare as their main source of health insurance.  This is where things can get complicated for those of you that have done a good job saving for retirement. 

Medicare premiums are need-based – so you may end up paying significantly more for the exact coverage of your next-door-neighbor.  In one example, a successful retired couple was paying over $565 per person per month for standard Medicare coverage.  This increased cost was due to “Medicare Premium surcharges” imposed on high-earning individuals.  Example: a 50 year old with a million dollars in a 401K account is projected to pay $343,000 in increased Medicare surcharges during retirement.
