    Answered . It is intended to be permanent, to last the rest of your life. However, the fund supporting it is being depleted and is expected to go broke in about 15 or 20 years, unless the politicians fix it. So if possible try to plan your finances so that you can take care of your own health care at that time. If i'm wrong and it survives, you will have a very nice vacation fund built up.
