It can be hard to find affordable living and quality health care in a single retirement locale.
Retirees have a healthy concern for their health-care options.
Health, in fact, is the No. 1 concern for retirees, according to a survey by T. Rowe Price. Indeed, 70% of retirees felt concerned about both their health and the cost of health care heading into retirement, the financial-services firm found.
For those considering retiring abroad, that’s no less true — and they must contend with the fact that it can be hard to figure out how good the care is in other countries, as there is no perfect ranking for health-care quality. Plus, often the countries that rank highest on health care according to a variety of measures — including Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and Australia — are notably pricey to live in.
