What states deliver the best and the worst healthcare in the US?


Now we have a ranking. This WalletHub report ranked all 50 states to reveal where Americans receive the best and the worse care. The ranks are based on over 40 measures of healthcare including cost, quality, and access to care. Vermont comes out the best, Louisiana is in last place. Outcomes continue to be difficult to measure in a way that is meaningful for the average healthcare consumer. But this provides an interesting picture of the variability between states. All are not equal. - Sanders DiPiero
