It depends. Some of which is based on the cost of living and how much you could gain from it over time.
There are also “cost of disease” and “cost of disease, and then a little cost of living” factors.
For example we might have a patient with an ulcer that is costing $4,000 per year, and if you pay that out of pocket you would lose $500 per month on average.
You might pay an extra month or so on a medication because you can’t afford to pay an additional month in the long run.
For example the cost of disease, costs and life expectancy at a certain age range is the following:
Cost of disease. Cost of disease to a person at age 20 years, per year $21
Cost of disease, per month $2
Cost of disease to a person by age 60, per year $36
Cost of disease by age 70, per year $66
Cost of disease by age 80, per year $80
Cost of disease by age 90, per year $101
Cost of disease by age 100, per year
Cost of disease per year from age 10 to 90 $1,541
Note: This is not based on cost of living – $1,517 is what you would pay for it in 2017 if you wanted it now and you had the same level of income in that time.
Cost of disease, by age 45, per year $2,100
Cost of disease, by age 55, per year $5,000
“Cost of disease, per year” is calculated based on the average cost of care that healthcare providers will charge you at a given age and whether you are willing to pay. (As you may know, you can choose to buy insurance at a discount and get out of the system if you can’t afford it, a feature of most insurance programs.)
Incomes for a given age range
Cost of disease
Age cost of disease per year $41,760
Age cost of death per year $51,700
Age-by-time, per day cost per year $8,000
Age-by-time, per hour cost per year $2,800
Age-by-time, per day, per day cost per year $36,000
Age-by-year cost per year, per month
