    Health costs a major concern for adults nearing Medicare eligibility

    The survey was conducted online in October. About two-thirds had employer-sponsored health insurance; 22 percent had government-sponsored health coverage, such as Medicaid, Medicare, or military coverage; 8 percent bought individual health plans; and 4 percent were uninsured.

    I'm surprised it's only 4%. Wait until Obamacare goes away; that number is going up. Not saying Obamacare is a good plan, it's not. But a lot of people retire around age 62 and get free Obamacare because they take their social security early and that's the only income they have. It becomes a bridge to medicare. This will not be good if the subsidies go away.
