When it comes to adequate healthcare, not all states are created equal, and having good healthcare is certainly important, now more than ever thanks to COVID-19. So, which states offer their residents the best healthcare options?

  • Well, WalletHub set out to determine the best and worst states for healthcare in the U.S.
  • They judged all 50 states and the District of Columbia on 44 factors in areas of cost, accessibility, and outcome.

  • District of Columbia, which is fourth overall, tops the list for both access and cost.
