Your clients may have a sanguine attitude toward health care planning in retirement, believing that Medicare will kick in and cover their needs. This column offers guidance through the thicket of health care choices that clients [and their families] will face, and discusses how to anticipate health care expenses to protect their retirement nest eggs and estate planning goals. The CPA's Guide to Financing Retirement Healthcare, by Jim Sullivan, CPA/PFS, covers many of these planning issues in-depth and is available free to PFP/PFS members and for sale to nonmembers.
