The Best Health Care States In America?
With the Affordable Care Act remaining in effect and the CDC reporting that over 87 percent of the population has a regular place to go for medical care, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019’s Best & Worst States for Health Care as well as accompanying videos.
In order to determine where Americans receive the highest-quality services at the best prices, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 43 key measures of health care cost, accessibility and outcome.
