The average out-of-pocket health-care costs used in this calculator are based on 2017 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey. Health-care costs include payments for health insurance, medical services, drugs, and medical supplies. The average out-of pocket cost includes essentially all out-of pocket costs, including premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and costs not covered by Medicare or other insurance. Data from 2017 has been adjusted to 2019 based on 3.8% inflation. Costs are adjusted for inflation in later years based on your input for the cost of health-care inflation factor.

Annual health-care costs are assumed to occur ratably at the end of each month in a year.
