A company called HealthView Services has just come out with its list of the ten most expensive states to receive health care during retirement. In a bit of a surprise, New Jersey is not at the top of the list – it’s actually just seventh.
According to HealthView, the average retiree in New Jersey will pay $148,865 worth of premiums for 20 years of health care during retirement. That’s a lot, but it’s below No. 1 Florida, where it will cost more like $152,184 for 20 years of health coverage.
