This study addresses three issues related on lifetime medical expenditures. The first one is to estimate lifetime medical cost from birth to death(age 95). We have performed simulations 100,000 hypothetical cohort of men and women respectively. The results show that, on average, lifetime medical cost would amount to about 74,150 thousands Won for a man and 87,868 thousands Won for a woman. Half of lifetime medical cost would be spent after age of 64 for a man and 66 for woman, which gives important policy implications for preparing an ageing or aged society. The second one is to estimate lifetime medical cost of cancer. In this case we have used a Markov model with 100,000 hypothetical cohort of men and women aged 30. The simulation gives us the following results; a man and woman aged 30 would be expected to pay 14,109 thousands and 10,513 thousands Won respectively during lifetime. The third one is to estimate lifetime medical cost of smokers, non-smokers and ex-smokers focusing on cerebrovascular diseases. We find that lifetime medical costs for cerebrovascular diseases would be 29,818 thousands Won, 18,568 thousands Won and 21,536 thousands Won for smokers, never-smokers and ex-smokers.
