Good health and sufficient health-care access are two of the most important factors in building a successful, sustainable life in retirement. Insurance company Bankers Life and its Center for a Secure Retirement research arm recently released a new report, "America's Best Cities for a Healthy (and More Affordable) Retirement," which ranks 60 U.S. metropolitan areas in order of healthfulness and affordability for retirees.
According to the center, cities were scored in eight categories: health care, wellness, the economy and affordability, social, activities, environment, transportation and crime. CNBC looks at the top 10 overall finishers in the study and how they scored specifically in terms of health care and wellness.
